Medical Marijuana Law Limited in California

The California Supreme Court clarified the state's medical marijuana law yesterday, deciding unanimously that individual suppliers can be prosecuted even when dealing to patients with doctor approval. Sellers, who are not caretakers, or fellow medical marijuana cooperative members, will not be protected from the law.

Patients will most likely turn exclusively to marijuana collectives and cooperatives to get their fill. Opponents of the decision say that centralizing the source of the drug makes it much easier for federal agents to raid such dispensaries.

In 1996 California voters passed Proposition 215, which approved marijuana cultivation and use by those with doctor approval. But earlier this year, the state's high court ruled that companies could fire employees who test positive for marijuana, even if they had a doctor's recommendation.

Do you think the trend toward narrowing the legal use of medical marijuana puts the intentions of California voters up in smoke?

i dont understand why its still illegal. does anybody actually think it is some kind of danger to society? all i hear about on the news anymore is how tight the city budget is, wouldnt it be better to just legalize it, and save police, jail space, etc. and make some tax revenue?

As long as you can't make a profit, I think it's totally okay.

Hypno, that's exactly what caught my attention as I read the article. What good is having a doctor's perscription if you can still get fired?

I have no problem with limiting the sales through dispensaries and cooperatives. However, this business of saying o.k. you can smoke if you have a Dr. permission but you can also be fired makes me scratch a balk spot on my head. As my Daddy used to say "what kind of $#!+ is this".

It's like "don't ask don't tell". The Clubs are every where but the feds come in from time to time to close them down. I don't know what's going on!

Utterly and completely without a doubt the most RIDICULOUS thing ever to prosecute marijuana use. Let's start prosecuting drinkers and cigarette smokers too! I still stand by my opinion that if they would de-criminalize it and tax it instead of outlawing it, there would many fewer problems.

"Be careful, California, you're supposed to be the crazy state – out there, the wild ones. Soon everybody will be saying, "Come down to the library, we'll have a wild time!" "Don't know where that book could be, mate...there's a lot of 'em about!""--Eddie Izzard
