UPI News Service, 09/19/2007 

City leaders in Santa Cruz, Calif., will suspend the city's no-smoking rule to allow medical marijuana users light up during an annual festival.

The smoking ban will be lifted to allow for the medicinal use of marijuana during the Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana annual festival Sept. 29, the San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News reported Wednesday.

"I think there's a solid basis for supporting this group," said Councilman Mike Rotkin, who joined Mayor Emily Reilly in creating the resolution that exempted WAMM from the smoking ban. "They're pretty selfless folks. It's not like they're out there profiting off other people's medical needs."

The cooperative, which has about 200 members, began in 1993 for seriously ill medical marijuana patients to grow and share the plant.
