As the walls come down attitudes change. Attend:
A [California] appeals court released a Southern California father who is a medical marijuana user from court-mandated parental supervision, making a milestone distinction between pot “use” and “abuse.”
The California Court of Appeals overturned a lower court’s decision to place “Paul M.,” the father of toddler “Drake M.” under the supervision of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, a mandate that had meant required drug counseling, parenting classes and random drug testing for the father. The appeals court ruled that medical marijuana use alone does not constitute child abuse or put children at risk.
The decision is a “victory for parents who use medical marijuana,” Lauren K. Johnson, attorney for the man identified in the court case as “Paul M.” Johnson based in Irvine, Calif., told The Huffington Post. According to Johnson, this is the first case to distinguish between substance abuse and substance use in juvenile dependency law. The ruling, she said, means that “medical marijuana use alone does not place a child in substantial risk of harm.”
