Cannabis activists in Utah plan to drop a lawsuit challenging the state Legislature’s action to replace a citizen ballot initiative to legalize medical marijuana with a more restrictive measure. Together for Responsible Use and Cannabis Education (TRUCE) and the Epilepsy Association of Utah plan to file a motion to drop the suit, according to Salt Lake City TV station KSTU. TRUCE founder Christine Stenquist wrote in an email, “While this lawsuit is coming to an end, the fight for a real medical cannabis system for the state of Utah, which will meet all patient needs, continues.” Lawmakers crafted a compromise measure during a special session that called for licenses to be awarded to 14 private dispensaries. Then, the Utah Supreme Court dismissed a separate lawsuit a year ago challenging the Legislature’s enactment of a more restrictive MMJ measure.
