Michael Komorn Posted June 15, 2010 Report Share Posted June 15, 2010 @KomornLawMI This case will have huge implications on the rest of the 14 medical marijuana states. This decision will most likely be used in all 14 states, by attorney’s prosecutors and defense attorneys for patients and caregivers, as precedent to argue that either Federal Law does in fact trump state law, or that both can coexist together, and all the medical marijuana acts in all states are not illegal federally. The decision could affect not only criminal cases, but have impact on those 28-29 cities that have enacted moratoriums or ordinances based upon the premise that the MMMA is illegal under federal law, and therefore can be legislated as prohibited. A ruling by this Court that Mr. Rice can argue the Medical Marijuana Defense in Federal Court suggest that those 28-29 cites are wrong and the legislation would need to be reexamined. A very important case the medical marijuana community should keep on its radar. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
