Mitt Romney's embrace of the Republican right wing (via his choice of running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan) would seem to have put most of the left firmly in the hands of Team Obama.

Not so fast, apparently.

Many in the marijuana nation are still fuming over the president's crackdown on weed dispensaries in states where medical pot is legal.

And so ...

... even as the Democrats celebrate the renomination of Obama in Charlotte this week, the group Americans for Safe Access is planning demonstrations against the prez for his stance on marijuana.

The group is organizing "Camp Wake Up Obama" protests at local Democratic presidential campaign offices, including those in the L.A. area, Sept. 20.

According to ASA:

We want to remind Obama of his campaign promises to our community, and that he has the power to stop the attacks on patients and safe access all over the nation.

We feel your un-medicated pain. But our question is, who else you gonna vote for?
