California "medical marijuana" update

The California Supreme Court yesterday “expanded” that state’s affirmative defense of possession and/or cultivation of marijuana when such is for medical purposes, including the transportation of relatively large amounts if it can be shown that that is consistent with the patient’s prescription and recommendation by a licensed physician. (Articles in L.A. Times and San Francisco Chronicle)

Case Ruling
Calif. Health & Safety Code § 11362.5
