California Supreme Court: Storefront Marijuana Dispensaries Are Definitely Legal

Source: SF Weekly

In this uncertain reality of ours, the last place to look for a nugget of truth is the legally fuzzy world of medical marijuana. But the California Supreme Court gifted us all an unexpected dose of certainty this week by refusing to do anything.

Earlier, Attorney General Kamala Harris and other law enforcement officials tried to put a San Diego medical cannabis dispensary operator behind bars, on the grounds that a storefront dispensary can't possibly be legal. A lower court ruled against the AG, and this week, the high court refused to hear an appeal filed by prosecutors and the L.A. City Attorney.

In other words: Storefront collectives, buying and selling medical cannabis, are definitely legal. Good to know after they'd been in existence for a decade.

... District attorneys in Sacramento and Southern California and the Los Angeles City Attorney wouldn't give up, and attempted to overturn the appellate court ruling. They went further, though, also asking the high court to depublish the lower court's binding opinion. By not doing so, the California Supreme Court has affirmed that a storefront dispensary is legal, according to Americans for Safe Access's Joe Elford.
