California Supreme Court To Weigh In On MMJ Laws

San Jose, CA -- The California Supreme Court has jumped into the fray again over the legality of medical marijuana laws, deciding on Wednesday to review two lower court rulings that impact how and whether local governments can regulate pot dispensaries across the state.In their weekly closed-door session, the justices voted unanimously to review cases out of Long Beach and Riverside that dealt with the ongoing conflict between California's voter-approved law allowing the use of medical marijuana and federal laws barring the use or sale of the drug. The state Supreme Court's rulings in the cases are likely to have a widespread impact in the Bay Area, where cities from San Jose to Oakland have regulations dealing with medical marijuana providers.
In the Long Beach case, a state appeals court last year concluded the city's attempts to regulate medical marijuana collectives clashed with federal drug laws and struck down the city's ordinance. A separate appeals court ruling out of Riverside County found that local governments have the right to legally ban medical pot dispensaries, giving local officials the clout to shutter them despite Proposition 215's provisions allowing marijuana use for medical purposes.The Supreme Court's intervention comes at a time when federal law enforcement officials have resumed a high-profile crackdown on medical marijuana providers throughout California. There are federal lawsuits pending in San Francisco and elsewhere challenging that campaign.SnippedComplete Article: San Jose Mercury News (CA)Author: Howard Mintz Published: January 19, 2012Copyright: 2012 San Jose Mercury NewsContact: letters mercurynews.comWebsite: Medical Marijuana Archives

Thank you, HempWorld.
That was very interesting. I think there will be a future where those alternative treatments will be looked into more truthfully and thoroughly with a look to finding what is good about them... not shortcomings. People are getting sick of the stupidity and arrogance of those that think they are the "Ruling class" and we have our own ways to know and to fight against stupidity now.

Jan Brewer's Latest Award!
Congratulations Jan! You have won a Bad Goober!120 days? Sorry lady, not even close.And for Your Gubernatorial Cluelessness before the will of the people as expressed on a ballot initiative (and it doesn't get much more direct than that) you deserve something, if not the unemployment line, so all I can drum up here on my tin laptop is a citation for being an example to future gubernatorial hopefuls: The Bad Goober – a bar of chocolate full of nuts like you, left out in the Phoenix sun for a 120 days.Good luck cleaning this one up.

One more... watching these movies, the pattern of suppression of alternative cures, including Cannabis, becomes obvious.Cannabis is one of the many victims of the pharmaceutical mafia run by the Rockefellers at the expense of American lives!And things are supposed to be this way. I don't think we are going to take this lying down, are we?

From more research, check this out!
“We can cure almost every cancer right now. Information is on file in the Rockefeller Institute, if it’s ever decided that it should be released. But consider - if people stop dying of cancer, how rapidly we would become overpopulated. You may as well die of cancer as something else.” –The New Order of Barbarians Read more: Blue Sky Sunshine’s Blog » The Cancer Report (Full Version) - Rockefeller Influence On The Health Care Industry

AZ Governor
If what she did was illegal why was she not arrested or cited? It seems she should be held accountable by the criminal justice system

Laws and Philosophy-Rockefeller's Ghost
"There's a lot of money to be made in philosophy - especially if you pick the right one."
          - Jason Robards in "Max Dugan Returns"A great line from a very funny movie.The same thing can be said for "the law", as laws are extensions of philosophical reasoning. John D. Rockefeller saw "laws" as "personal investments", in Eugenics and in Society as a whole. But his definition of "society" did not include anyone he had no use for-the poor, the sick, the elderly or people with "different" ideas from his. By Rockefeller's philosophy, (read: Laws)
these folks should be sterilized, saddled with a criminal record (to exempt them from voting) or better yet, gassed, for the benefit of "the elect".
 We in America are suffering from many different kinds of defecits, both financial and philosophical. 
There is not a lot we can do about the money, its gone.
The Federal Reserve disbursed some 3 trillion to banks that Chairman Bernanke does not have to name because of the way the law creating the Fed was set up. Ben S. Bernanke doesn't have to answer to anyone. That's an amazing philisophical coup they pulled off in 1913!
(and again in the 1930's, after years of "Reefer Madness".)The legalization of marijuana will happen eventually. (Hopefully sooner than later.)  I no longer trust the Legislative branch, once bought, they tend to stay bought. I no longer trust the Executive branch. When presidents want more power, Congress can be expected to cave in.(The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, the Patriot Act, etc.)
This is easier than answering to their constituents why their sons and daughters must go to war, as they would if there were a draft. I do trust the Judicial branch, and it is here that we have the best chance for reform. The US Gov. has painted itself into the corner of entrapment, a fact expected to be found by the courts before the election.  Our government is supposed to consist of checks and balances.The wealthy write the checks and the rest of us are expected to maintain their balance. Heah comes de judge . . . . !
