Number of Legal Medical Marijuana Patients Notes:1. California has registered 84,111 card holders since the program began, but cards are only valid for one year; 6,490 cards were issued FY2014-2015. California's registry is voluntary, so the number of cardholders likely underestimates the number of users. For this resource we have used the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) Feb. 8, 2016 estimate for the number of California patients, which is based on Oregon's patients per capita.

Trudeau’s Canada, Again On Tuesday, Nov. 10, six days after Justin Trudeau, leader of the Liberal Party, was sworn in as prime minister of Canada, I was shown into his office on the third floor of the Parliament building in Ottawa. A dark oak-paneled room, it contained a jumble of outsize furniture chosen by the previous occupant, Stephen Harper, whose Conservative Party was in power for a decade. The office had the air of a recently abandoned bunker — shelves bare, curtains drawn, personal effects hastily removed. Trudeau’s father, Pierre, occupied the same office for 16 years during the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s, and the new prime minister would shortly install his father’s old desk, a symbol of restoration but also an emphatic rejection of his predecessor. The squat, bulldoglike bureau left by the departing prime minister, Trudeau implied, was a reflection of Harper’s autocratic manner. ‘‘We’re going to move this place around,’’ Trudeau said.

Local Medical Marijuana Guidelines Cannabis guidelines adopted by Cities For current information, visit canorml.org This Page Is Out of Date as of March 12, 2010 and Is Preserved for Research and Archival Purposes only. DO NOT RELY ON THE INFORMATION BELOW Marijuana breathalyzer test could be coming soon CBSNEWS - A new invention may soon make it easier for police who pull over risky drivers to test them for marijuana impairment on the spot, in addition to the usual alcohol breath test. A marijuana breathalyzer will begin clinical trials early next year, the Oakland, California-based Hound Labs Inc. announced this week. "The idea is that law enforcement will have one device out on the road to test for both THC [a marijuana component] and alcohol," said Hound Labs CEO and founder Dr. Mike Lynn, an emergency room physician at Highland Hospital, in Oakland. Typically, measuring the level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) -- the psychoactive component in cannabis that gives users a "high" -- is done using urine, blood, or saliva tests. The results can show if marijuana has been used in recent days or weeks, but they are not a very accurate way to measure real-time impairment, said Lynn.

But in California, Health and Safety Code 11358 makes cultivation of even just one harmless marijuana plant a felony crime, punishable by up to three (3) years in state prison and a $10,000 fine. In this article, our Southern California Marijuana Defense Lawyers explain all about HS 11358 as well as common defenses that can be used to fight a prosecution for marijuana cultivation.Depending on the circumstances, it may be possible to get the cultivation charges reduced or dismissed...and even get your marijuana plants returned to you.
