Over the past few years, there were several raids on California medical marijuana clubs and individual growers. Motivated by fear that their medical marijuana supply might dry up, two ill people sued Attorney General John Ashcroft and won injunctions which barred the Justice Department from prosecuting them on their suppliers. The Supreme Court has agreet to hear the case, which involves the Bush administration’s appeal, sometime next winter. Patients’ rights groups are thrilled by the Supreme Court’s decision to hear the case hoping the high court will protect the rights of patients who need medical marijuana to treat their conditions. There are 35 states which have passed the legislation recognizing the value of medical marijuana.
