Supreme Court Lets State Medical Marijuana Law Stand
On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected appeals from San Diego and San Bernardino counties objecting to the state's 13-year-old medical marijuana law. The counties have refused to issue identification cards required under the state law since 2004, arguing that the state's authorization for using medical marijuana conflicted with the federal government's zero-tolerance policy.
