Medical Marijuana Lawsuit Vs Obama Dismissed By Federal Judge In Sacramento

Medical marijuana advocates faced another setback Tuesday, when a federal judge in Sacramento dismissed a lawsuit claiming that the Obama administration broke its promise to leave the pot industry alone

Medical marijuana advocates faced another setback Tuesday, when a federal judge in Sacramento dismissed a lawsuit claiming that the Obama administration broke its promise to leave the pot industry alone when it began an aggressive crackdown against California dispensaries last fall.

Proponents of the suit cited President Obama’s 2009 Ogden Memo, which told federal prosecutors to concentrate their efforts on large drug trafficking networks and “not focus federal resources” on medical marijuana operations in states that have legalized cannabis for medicinal purposes.
