Starbucks responds to boycott, says they don't support anti medical marijuana lobbyists

Starbucks has released a statement on their non relationaship with CDIA (Colorado Drug Investigation Association), an anti-medical marijuana lobby group.

For more info: Seattle Weekly

Starbucks released this statement:

"This organization is apparently targeting us because a local law enforcement organization in Colorado posted our logo on their website. Starbucks has not taken a position on their issue," the statement said. "We have a tremendous amount of respect for the men and women of local law enforcement. However, we have not sponsored this particular organization through our foundation. It is up to the discretion of our local teams to support those groups that are relevant in their neighborhoods. Our stores often support organizations in their community by donating coffee for their events."

Expecting some free Starbucks at our next MassCann/NORML meeting. Haha.
