Berkeley declares itself a sanctuary city for recreational pot
By Madison Park
Berkeley City Council members have passed a resolution declaring the city a sanctuary for recreational marijuana.
The move may be the first of its kind in the country, tweeted Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin, who proposed the measure.
Under the new resolution, which passed Tuesday night, no Berkeley department, agency, commission, officer or employee "shall use any city funds or resources to assist in the enforcement of federal drug laws related to cannabis.
