Ca Supreme Court Allows Medical Marijuana Ruling to Stand

October 16, 2008 - The California Supreme Court today declined to review a lawsuit filed by San Diego, Merced and San Bernardino counties claiming federal laws supercede California's medical marijuana law. The counties' challenge was rejected by the San Diego Superior Court in 2006, and that court's decision was upheld in July by the 4th District Court of Appeal. San Diego County will appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court within 90 days, said Senior Deputy County Counsel Thomas Bunton.
