Calif. Highway Patrol Won't Seize Medical Pot
Excellent news for medical marijuana patients in California:
The new policy, by the California Highway Patrol, states that an "individual is to be released and the marijuana is not to be seized" if the person qualifies under state law to possess marijuana for medicinal purposes. It also says that officers "shall not conduct traffic enforcement stops for the primary purpose of drug interdiction" involving the authorized use of medical marijuana.
A similar policy seems to be underway in Denver where police have agreed not to charge a medical pot patient on whom marijuana was found - and to return the pot to him.
