JDSupra: “The Court of Appeal recently issued an opinion that clarifies the operational parameters of medical marijuana collectives, cooperatives, and dispensaries, confirms that cities may pursue civil injunction relief under Health and Safety Code section 11570 and Civil Code section 3479, and confirms that cities may pursue remedies under the Unfair Competition Law to enjoin unlawfully operating medical marijuana dispensaries. (The People v. Joseph, 2012 WL 1004770, Cal.App. 2 Dist., March 26, 2012). . . . The court explains that Health and Safety Code section 11362.775 ‘protects group activity ‘to cultivate marijuana for medical purposes,’’ but ‘does not cover dispensing or selling marijuana‘.”
The California medical marijuana dispensary in this case is Organica, Inc., owned by Jeffrey K. Joseph.
