Frequently Asked Questions
Is this legal?
Yes, if you have an current doctor's recommendation, you live in California, and you become a member of a collective.
What is the California state guideline regarding the amount of medical marijuana allowed per patient?
In a state supreme court ruling, People v. Kelly
(2010), the court held that patients can NOT be prosecuted simply for
exceeding the SB 420 limits; however, they can be arrested and forced
to defend themselves as having had an amount consistent with their
personal medical needs.
Can I legally grow marijuana?
In California, as a legitimate patient or caregiver, you are entitled to grow a reasonable
amount for patient use only.
There is no reason that anyone, living in California, who is in possession
of a doctor's recommendation for medical marijuana would not qualify for
membership into one of the collectives. Proposition 215 allows for any
patient with a doctor's recommendation to use, possess or cultivate
marijuana for medical purposes.
How does Prop 215 protect me in California?
Applicable only to CA residents, an Affirmative
Defense is your best recourse for defending your
rights as a U.S. Citizen.
Am I protected under any other law?
The U.S. Federal Government presently serves eight patients annually with as much as
lbs. of pre-rolled marijuana cigarettes. This comes to about 300 pre-rolled
marijuana cigarettes per months under IND (investigational New Drug Program).
states have expressly addressed the issue of
palliative care, usually allowing some medicinal uses of marijuana in derogation
of controlled substances prohibitions
