CA Court: Concentrates Protected Under Medical Marijuana Laws

Marijuana Concentrates

A California state appellate court ruled that marijuana concentrates are protected under California’s 1996 medical marijuana law.

The appellate judges determined that when marijuana “was approved by voters” in California it was defined as “all parts of the plant Cannabis sativa L., whether growing or not; the seeds thereof; the resin extracted from any part of the plant; and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of the plant, its seeds or resin.”

The court proceedings stemmed from a case where a medical marijuana patient was charged with unlawful possession of concentrated marijuana in 2013, a misdemeanor which caused him to violate his probation due to a failure “to obey all laws.”
