Major victory for California marijuana dispensary in federal court

Editor's Note: A federal judge in California ruled on Oct. 19 that Congressional law defunding the Justice Department's war on medical marijuana means what it was intended to mean, that the war on medical cannabis is over. Judge Breyer ruled, "the plain reading of [Congressional law] forbids the Department of Justice from enforcing this injunction against [Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana (MAMM)] to the extent that MAMM operates in compliance with state California law." The medical cannabis industry in California and beyond has faced a federal crackdown since 2011, with dispensaries such as Harborside Health Center and Berkeley Patients Group both facing federal forfeiture actions. The judge's order lifting an injunction against the MAMM may have far reaching legal impact for the industry, according to attorneys.
