SAN FRANCISCO — Hundreds of demonstrators gathered at City Hall here Tuesday to demand federal respect for state and local marijuana laws, a day after federal agents raided the state's first pot trade school and a related dispensary across the bay in Oakland. The San Francisco rally and march to a nearby federal building was planned before Monday's raid. But the sweep on businesses owned by prominent marijuana activist Richard Lee emboldened protesters and brought denunciations from local officials and lawmakers in five states with medical cannabis laws.

When she was 9, Dena Freeman carefully carved a gun out of a bar of Ivory soap and painted it black with liquid shoe polish. It was the perfect toy for playing wardens and inmates. But her childhood on Alcatraz Island as the daughter of a correctional officer was far different than that of most others her age. For one thing, toy guns were forbidden. A guard caught her playing with the fake gun and told her father. She was scolded, and her father promised the warden she'd obey the rules.
