While the DEA has no excuse for his liberal interpretation of the 2014 Congress change that are supposed to prevent the federal government from going full-blown search-and-destroy missions in medical marijuana states, a federal judge has in San Francisco a landmark decision issued that could to serve to castrate these heinous systems from this point forward.
On Monday, US District Judge Charles Breyer, the DEA slammed with a scathing judgment, the Agency for the continuation of the bust the doors of the medical marijuana community, even if a change in the last year’s state budget tied to prevent such actions. The decision, which is reportedly the first by a federal judge, for state marijuana laws, arguing that the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment clearly prevents the Justice Department from money to crack skulls in States that have established programs medical marijuana,
The federal ruling surrounds a case with Lynette Shaw, founder of Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana in Fairfax, who was forced to shut down their pharmacy in 2011 after the Justice Department nailed it to the wall with a federal disposal. Fortunately decision by Judge Breyer not only allows to the infirmary to open Shaw again, but it might be the other marijuana-related operations that come subject to similar bans on some air.
It has about whether the Rohrabacher-Farr change actually prevents a significant amount of confusion in this year that the feds from spending funds to companies and patients in medical marijuana states Shakedown, or if it prevents them simply by using Uncle Sam checkbook to states from legalizing prohibit marijuana for medical purposes.
Earlier this year, a spokesman for the Justice Department told the Los Angeles Times that the change prevents only the US government of “impede the ability of States to fulfill their medical marijuana laws,” but it does not have the medical marijuana Community to protect them from prosecution.
Of course, Congressman Farr and Rohrabacher took issue with the DOJ ridiculous statement, asking the submission of a letter of the then Attorney General Eric Holder, that he either “bring your department again in accordance with federal law by ceasing marijuana prosecutions and forfeiture measures against those who act according to the state of medical marijuana laws, “or prepare in order to meet in the parking lot for a good old fashion fist fight.
“The purpose of our amendment was to the department at the waste of limited law enforcement resources on prosecution and asset forfeiture actions against medical marijuana patients and providers, including companies that legally prevent operates under state law the” read the letter.
Although the US Inspector General suggested in August that he might start an investigation of the DOJ free interpretation of the amendment, there has been no word as to whether any kind of investigation is currently underway.
Nevertheless, Judge Breyer asserted latest judgment-that that the Congress-law “prohibits the Department of Justice of the enforcement of the injunction against MAMM to the extent that MAMM working in accordance with state law, California” -seems to clarify the debate. In fact, the judgment was almost certainly to the front doors of the Ministry of Justice tacked this morning, and it could probably try a precedent for the entire nation, as federal legislators to renew the change in the next fiscal year.
