Provider of clinical cannabis in small amounts set free after Judge dismisses all charges “in the interest of justice.”

Supporters from The Human Solution and Landa Prison Outreach Program (LPOP) filled the entire courtroom where Catrina Falbo had her charges dismissed.

Catrina Falbo was providing medical cannabis for patients in dire circumstances and a Judge in Orange County, the truly Honorable Robert Gallivan, found wisdom in the defense’s position that this case should be thrown out… and it was.

Found with only three hundred dollars, and ONLY THREE OUNCES of medical cannabis, clearly marked as such, Orange County prosecutors thought is best to spend money on a case that clearly held no water.

With back-to-back victories in the medical marijuana movement in Orange County, perhaps Judges know that, as Congressman Barney Frank said in last month’s issue of Playboy:

“Marijuana is clearly a case where the public is is way ahead of politicians.  The current policy is ludicrous. It contributes to the cartels and the big trafficers.”

Clearly, there are some bright Judges, and members of Congress, and it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the politicians support the will of the people.
