Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Justice issued a formal directive to U.S. attorneys instructing them not to prosecute medical-marijuana patients and providers who are acting in accordance with their state law.
The Colorado Court of Appeals redefined the role of medical-marijuana caregivers Thursday in a ruling that says growers must have more meaningful contact with patients than simply providing the drug.
The federal government announced this week that it will no longer seek to prosecute patients using medicinal marijuana if the practice of prescribing it is legal within that patient's state.
For marijuana activists, the "stoner" caricature is beyond ludicrous. Those most affected by the vicissitudes of cannabis legislation are as versed in legalese as they are in discussing trichomes or your plant's CO2 uptake.
