Police pulled over a car with tinted windows, an offense in California, last September, reports the Santa Cruz Sentinel. Inside they found two men and
18 ounces of "Purple Haze" brand marijuana worth about $3,000.
Leo Beus, 47, and his friend, Jon Balesteri, 54, were charged with transporting marijuana with intent to sell, but after they said they'd bought the
weed at the Oakland Cannabis Buyers' Club — and produced medical prescriptions to prove it — the charges were eventually dropped. The judge in this
case ruled that the marijuana was legal and told police to return it to the two men.
