District Court Judge Christopher Cross ruled that the city of Centennial, CO, should not have closed a medical cannabis dispensary there, because patients have a right to buy medicine – not just to use it. The dispensary filed a lawsuit after the city forced the facility to close earlier this year. This is an important step in protecting safe access for patients in Colorado. Let’s hope courts in other medical cannabis states follow Judge Corss’ lead in placing patients’ rights ahead of federal drug laws.
