Guam - The Supreme Court of Guam has ruled in favor of the Guam Legislature in regards to its declaratory judgment request relative to medicinal marijuana. According to Attorney Howard Trapp, who filed an amicus brief against the legislature’s request, says the decision was handed down earlier this afternoon. It was just yesterday when the Supreme Court heard oral arguments over the matter. As we reported, the Guam Legislature filed for the declaratory judgment after the Guam Election Commission voted to not place Bill 215 on the November General Election Ballot. The measure, which lapsed into law, would let voters decide whether to approve the Joaquin KC Concepcion II Compassionate Cannabis Use Act of 2013 that would allow the use of medicinal marijuana on Guam.
