Medical Marijuana Advocacy Group Sues Fresno

Sponsored by:

A medical Marijuana advocacy group has filed suit against the city of Fresno for enacting a ban on medical marijuana dispensaries.

The group Americans For Safe Access contends that the bans enacted by Fresno and three other California cities are an unlawful barrier to medical marijuana.

The suit claims that the city is in violation of the state´s Compassionate Use Act, and that uncertainties in the act prevent qualified patients from gaining access to legal marijuana for medical purposes.

The group says it will not rule out legal action against the cities of Rocklin, Yuba City and San Rafael for imposing similar bans.
