Police must return medical marijuana

Stating that the case was one “more a matter of analytical accouchement than precedential accretion” the court of appeal has ruled that police can be compelled to return medical marijuana seized during a traffic stop.

The case is City of Garden Grove v. Superior Court (Kha), and the court ruled that local governments have no option but to run items that state law considers “lawfully possessed” even if possession is a crime under federal law.
