Earlier this month, police in California seized 1,200 marijuana from 9 “medical” marijuana farms deemed illegal.
California’s “medical” marijuana law allows cardholders to grow marijuana plants–but how many plants they may grow is ambiguous. As one marijuana-supporter notes:
“Many recommendations actually are open ended because the doctor doesn’t know how many plants that patient is going to need,”
That seems like a minor detail, doesn’t it? The doctor thinks a person needs to use marijuana as medicine, but doesn’t know how much the person is going to need? Doctors don’t typically operate that way with other types of medicine; rigorous scientific research and dosing standards are part of what makes modern medicine so effective.
You would think after 10 years California’s medical marijuana law would have most of the ambiguities ironed out of it, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. You can watch the full news story about the situation in California below.
