D.C. pot rules survive challenge

The #DC rules for future #medicinal #marijuana dealers have survived another legal challenge. In a six-page ruling this week, U.S. District Judge John Bates rejected the latest in a series of challenges filed by attorney Montgomery Blair Sibley.

Sibley claimed, in part, that he was being asked to incriminate himself by signing certain forms. The judge reasoned, in part, that Sibley had already signed the required affidavit, and had been turned down by the city.

I'm sure the future of medicinal marijuana will continue to be rocky and face adversity. For now though it has made a good stand.
