I could care less about marijuana laws. I have no desire at all to rally behind something like people that want to smoke herb. We all know the reasons why it's illegal and I don't think that any government in charge is going to change that, not in America.

El Dorado county citizens can breath easier and sleep better knowing that the likes of Dave Harde will be removed from society for 30 months starting January 16, 2007. I'm sure Little Danny Bears (LDB) is beaming with pride and accomplishment.

 

Please email us with more personal info regarding the assault on justice by LDB.

 
CA Medical Marijuana Law Upheld by Judge PDF Print E-mail

On Wednesday, December 6, a state judge upheld California's law permitting the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes and tossing out a lawsuit by three counties challenging the law. San Diego County sued the state and its health services director in February over a state requirement that counties issue identification cards for medical marijuana users. They were later joined by San Bernardino and Merced counties. Superior Court Judge William R. Nevitt Jr. wrote in his ruling that counties would not be breaking federal law by giving out state identification cards.

Is MMCA a "large grow"? What about "vendors"? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Matt Vaughn   
Wednesday, 29 November 2006

MMCA uses contract growers rather than outside vendors, where we have little or no control of growing and processing. Each of our contractors has a commercially and genetically sustainable garden that is under 100 plants. Each plant is tagged as the property of MMCA, and our contractors are paid to tend and process them. As we expand, we will add a "Farmer's Market" for consignment sales of less than $600 for non-contractors. Call or email for more info.

What about the "federal" issue? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Matt Vaughn

The California Constitution is very clear that state, county, and local jurisdictions are required to enforce state law first. Look at California auto emission laws and you'll see that they are very different from federal auto emission laws. Many California health, welfare, business, and tax laws conflict with federal laws, but, the state has the right, and in the case of public health and welfare, the duty, to enforce those states laws first. Local jurisdictions can, and do, turn marijuana cases over to the feds if the case has enough value to benefit federal attempts to seize assets. The DEA, ATF, DOJ are amongst the federal jurisdictions that give public notice of their seizures in the Wall Street Journal, and, you bet these guys work for those bottom lines. The current federal tactic seems to be the "Al Capone", multi-agency takedown of those who trade outside the bounds of tax law. The Raich decision, from the U.S. Supreme Court, did not strike down California's Compassionate Use Act, but rather, it defines all marijuana production, even in the privacy of your own back yard, under the jurisdiction of Interstate Commerce, so all you Al Capones out there, beware.

CA Supreme Court: Transporting Pot is Legal for Medicinal Users PDF Print E-mail
Written by Matt Vaughn   
Tuesday, 28 November 2006

Monday, Nov. 27, the California Supreme Court issued a long-awaited opinion in People v. Wright, in which under SB 420, either the holder of an identification card or a "qualified patient" - someone entitled to the protections of the CUA (Compassionate Use Act), but who does not have an indentification card - may assert the CUA as a defense to a charge of transporting marijuana.

 

SB 420 applies retroactively to pending cases.

 

A defendent need not indenitfy himself or herself to police as a medical user at the time of arrest (remember HIPPA?) before he or she can assert a medical defense.

 

The "default guidelines" set forth in Health & Safety Code sec. 11362.77(a) were intended "to be the threshold, not the ceiling," and a defendant who exceeds those guidelines is still entitled to a compassionate use instruction.
