Supreme Court: Yuma sheriff must return seized medical marijuana

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to consider Yuma County's appeal of a state court ruling that the county sheriff had to return seized marijuana to a woman with a medical marijuana card. County officials hard argued that returning the drugs would violate federal law.

Since the time we were ruled by kings it has been a rule that evidence is returned if no charges are filed.  A similar case took place in California a few years ago.  The seizure had been reported to the media at inflated prices.  After they had destroyed the evidence for medical use they were required to reimburse the patient at the same inflated value that they had reported to the newspapers.  They were more careful after that to report an actual market price.  LOL
