Humboldt County Woman Suing to Stop Eviction From Federally Subsidized Housing After Small Amount of Medical Marijuana Was Found
A local attorney is arguing that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recent decision to approve a medication derived from cannabis cancels their previous position that marijuana has no medical value.
Courthouse News Service is reporting that his client, Emma Nation, a Humboldt County resident, is suing the Trump administration.
Nation, they said, is “seeking an injunction to stop a local housing authority from evicting her from federally subsidized housing because she uses medical cannabis in edible form.”
Her attorney, Frederic Fletcher, argues, according to Courthouse News, that the recent approval of the epilepsy medication by the FDA means that it can no longer argue that marijuana has no medical value. Frederic Fletcher said, “We don’t even need to go there. The FDA has already done that part.”
