Ron Kiczenski vs Attorney General John Ashcroft (or his replacement), the Drug Enforcement Agency Director, the Secretary of Defense, the Director of Homeland Security, the Secretary of the Interior, and any other Executive Branch administrators of Federal Law regarding cannabis.

On November 4, 2003, Ron Kiczenski filed a complaint with the United States District Court, Eastern District of California...

Charting unmapped waters, Kiczenski asks for an injunction against the Justice Department to prevent it from prosecuting and punishing him for possessing hemp (or any other cannabis) seeds, or planting and cultivating said seeds.
