A major California medical marijuana ruling this week is making waves across the nation in the cannabis industry after a United States District Judge Charles R. Breyer came to the verdict that the injunction against Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana in Fairfax and its founder Lynetter Shaw should be lifted. This came after Ms. Shaw was forced to shut down her dispensary in 2011 when the California Department of Justice stuck her with a federal injunction, the judge stated that the Department of Justice did not have a valid reason for closing down the dispensary. The District Judge used the RohraBacher-Farr Amendment as his main reason in the ruling. The RohraBacher-Farr Amendment prevents the Federal Government from prosecuting medical marijuana patients or distributors who are in compliance with the laws of their state. The judge stated that by closing Marian Alliance and lots of other dispensaries that many of the medical cannabis suppliers has been “substantially impeded”
