United States v. Cannon

3rd Circuit

June 8, 2022

In a per curium opinion, the Third Circuit dealt with an issue that “has confused defendants and divided courts in the Third Circuit”: Whether courts may excuse medical marijuana use in bond revocation hearings. Unsurprisingly, the Court ruled that courts may not permit the use of medical marijuana in such circumstances because “it is beyond dispute that the use and possession of marijuana—even where sanctioned by a State—remains a violation of federal law.” The defendant here complained because he is a paraplegic and suffers from severe medical conditions. His doctor had recommended medical marijuana and issued him a certification under Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act. But to no avail. Leave it to the Third Circuit to kill a dude’s buzz.
