Times Staff and Wire Reports, Los Angeles Times

A judge Wednesday upheld California's law permitting use of medical marijuana, rejecting a lawsuit by three counties challenging the decade-old statute.

The counties argued that local governments shouldn't have to uphold a state law weaker than the federal blanket ban on marijuana.

San Diego County sued California and its health services director in February. San Bernardino and Merced counties joined the suit.
