Guam - Oral arguments are scheduled for Monday in the Supreme Court of Guam regarding the Legislature's request for a declaratory judgment.

The legal action is a result of Resolution 358 which seeks relief over the Legislature's ability through a duly passed law of Guam to direct the Guam Election Commission to place a measure on this year's election ballot. 

That measure in question is Senator Tina Muna Barnes's Bill 215 which lapsed into law. The measure would allow the people of Guam to vote on whether medicinal marijuana should be legalized in Guam. You may remember the GEC legal counsel deemed action by the legislature as "inorganic", as a result the voted to not place it on the ballot.
