Supreme Court Upholds California Medical Marijuana Law

Attorney General Eric H. Holder said in March, that the federal government would not be devoting a great deal of effort to “prosecuting low-level marijuana cases” and now… The Supreme Court has “rejected appeals from two hold-out counties in Southern California that objected to the state’s 13-year-old medical marijuana law and claimed it should be struck down as violating the federal drug control act.”

Without comment, the court turned down the pair of appeals.

The action probably will clear the way for patients in San Diego and San Bernardino counties to seek county-issued identification cards that show they are eligible to possess and use marijuana.

The identification cards have been required under state law since 2004, but the two counties have refused to issue them.

Needless to say this is a victory for medical marijuana advocates.
