More on medical marijuana

Here's a link to the Register's Friday editorial, which outlines what we think is going to be necessary to bring the county into line with state law concerning medical marijuana and access to it by patients. We were particularly shocked to learn that the policy of the sheriff's department when encountering a medical marijuana patient, is to confiscate both the cannabis and the recommendation letter. We believe that is clearly contrary to state law, and that if the sheriff's department doesn't change it's policy soon it's likely to face the same kind of lawsuit that got the California Highway Patrol to change its policies.
