Medical Marijuana Patients Serve San Diego Supervisors a Taste of their Own Medicine - Americans for Safe Access
SAN DIEGO - The American Civil Liberties Union, Americans for Safe Access and the Drug Policy Alliance announced today that they would intervene in the San Diego County Board of Supervisors' federal lawsuit against the State of California. The Supervisors' lawsuit seeks to overturn California's Compassionate Use Act, which permits patients to use, and doctors to recommend, medical marijuana under the explicit protection of state law. The group plans to file a motion to intervene in federal court on behalf of medical marijuana patients and their doctors by the end of the day.
