California Club’s court victory

The Oakland Cannabis Buyers’ Cooperative (OCBC) has won a partial court victory against an injunction brought against it by the federal government. District Court Judge Charles Breyer had issued an injunction against the club, saying it violated federal law.

But the federal appeals court judge ruled that the injunction was too broad, and that the lower court had not considered the medical necessity for some patients to use marijuana.

The ruling does not apply to all of the club’s clients, as the federal definition of medical necessity is much stricter than California?s Prop 215, which requires only a doctor’s recommendation.
