Gass v. 52nd Judicial District

The Supreme Court exercised its King’s Bench authority to consider whether Lebanon County courts and probation department can prohibit a probationer from using medical marijuana where that probationer otherwise is in compliance with Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act. Simply put, the Court held that the courts and probation department could not prohibit medical marijuana use by those who otherwise comply with the Medical Marijuana Act. The opinion is particularly notable as a rare unanimous ruling from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and a concise opinion.
