From CBC News:

A Federal Court judge has struck down federal regulations and granted medical marijuana patients the right to grow their own cannabis.

The constitutional challenge was launched by Nanaimo, B.C., resident Neil Allard and three other British Columbia residents who argued that legislation introduced by the previous Conservative government violated their charter rights.

Judge Michael Phelan heard the case between February and May 2015 in Vancouver.

In the meantime, an injunction has allowed thousands of Canadians with an authorization to use medical marijuana to continue growing marijuana until today’s decision.
