Medical Marijuana Posted Jun 10 2015

Canada's Supreme Court has made a final ruling in a case involving illegal cookies. A baker from the Cannabis Buyers Club of Canada was being charged with making pot cookies, as the law only allowed the sale of dried buds as medicine. The Supreme Court has now ruled that medical marijuana is no longer restricted to dried plant matter and can now be sold in any form.

Restricting people to dried marijuana for medical purposes has been declared "null and void" by the court.
The court ruled that prohibiting possession of non-dried forms of marijuana is "contrary to the principles of fundamental justice because they are arbitrary; the effects of the prohibition contradict the objective of protecting health and safety".
