Published on Apr 5, 2016

The City Council of Antioch, California voted in January to ban all marijuana cultivation within city limits. Antioch tokers will be forced to commute to a city with dispensaries. A pro-marijuana group is suing the East Bay for trying to ban medical marijuana home grows for medical marijuana patients. 

According to Podein, Patient J.K. is an Antioch resident who suffers from HIV, hepatitis C and post-traumatic stress disorder, and was using marijuana to deal with those illnesses and the side effects of other medication.

...and is asking a judge to overturn a part of the law that prohibits a medical marijuana patient from growing pot for personal use.
