The Anaheim case has drawn a lot of attention as more and more local governments confront the issue of access to medical marijuana. Multiple statewide law enforcement associations filed briefs in support of Anaheim, as have nearly three-dozen cities, including several in Orange County: Costa Mesa, Cypress, Fullerton, Garden Grove, Newport Beach, Orange, Placentia, Tustin and Westminster.
Shortly after the appeal was filed, the California Attorney General issued guidelines in August 2008 recognizing the legality of storefront dispensaries as long as they comply with certain operational requirements. For instance, dispensaries must operate as a collective or cooperative on a not-for-profit basis, sell only to member patients and primary caregivers, and pay sales tax to the State.
The Anaheim case is the first lawsuit of its kind to reach the appellate courts in California, and may shape the issue of access to medical marijuana for patients across the State. "Dispensaries serve a critical function for our most seriously ill and should be encouraged, not banned," said ASA Media Liaison Kris Hermes. "Thousands of patients in California cannot cultivate their own medical marijuana and rely on local dispensaries for safer access than the illicit market." An increasing number of medical marijuana states are adopting laws to deal with the issue of distribution, including New Mexico, Rhode Island, Maine and, most recently, New Jersey. A decision by the Fourth Appellate District Court in the Anaheim case is expected within the next couple of months.

Listen to the pro-grow crowd spin the facts. Your 'medicine' is a hoax in MOST instances. Just be honest and say you like to smoke dope. It is your drug of preference/choice. This county is trying to save itself. Pogo said, "We have met the enemy and he is us". More sad truth said, "We have met the enemy and he has no values or respect for community".
Please, educate yourself before you spew your ignorance.
