U.S. Appeals Court Backs Some Medical Pot

Washington Post

This was expected, given that Judge Pregerson (of "if I don't like Supreme Court opinions, I'll ignore them" fame) and Judge Paez (of "if I don't like old voting machines, I'll delay an entire election" fame) were on the panel.

I'm not saying medical pot is bad. I'm just saying (as I've said before) that if you get any combination of judges Goodwin, Ferguson, Reinhardt, Pregerson, Paez, or Thomas on a panel, expect to see something interesting, if not at odds with current trends (or some would say, law).

Howard Bashman notes that this decision is a victory for Volokh conspirator Randy Barnett, who has been working on this case for some time.
