People v. Colvin

By The Union of Medical Marijuana Patients on May 24th 2012

People v. Colvin, the California Supreme Court upheld certain protections for medical marijuana patients and providers. The Colvin Court held that the Attorney General’s requirement would “contravene the intent of [state law] by limiting patients’ access to medical marijuana.”

The Court of Appeal also held in People v. Colvin that, “collectives and cooperatives may cultivate and transport marijuana in aggregate amounts tied to its membership numbers.” In addition, the Colvin decision affirmed that possession of extracted or concentrated forms of medical marijuana was legal under state law.
