CA Supreme Court Rejects Assault on State Medical Marijuana Laws

Oct. 16, 2008
SAN FRANCISCO – The California Supreme Court today denied the appeal of two California counties challenging the constitutionality of the State’s medical marijuana laws. San Diego and San Bernardino Counties were appealing the July 31, 2008 ruling of the California Court of Appeal, which held that California’s medical marijuana laws are entirely legitimate.

“Today’s decision is a ringing affirmation of state medical marijuana laws and a momentous victory for countless seriously-ill patients,” said Adam Wolf, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union’s Drug Law Reform Project who argued the case before the Court of Appeal. “The Counties should stop frittering away taxpayer dollars in a doomed effort to undermine the will of California voters.”
