Medical Marijuana Ruling

Unfortunately, according to this new Court of Appeals case, the Police are under no obligation to check on the status of a medical marijuana patient prior to conducting a raid of a person’s residence. In other words, the existence of the Medical Marijuana Act doesn’t force the police to do any more investigation than they would have to do in the absence of the Act.
