Guam - A week after the Guam Election Commission submitted its response brief to his federal lawsuit, Attorney Howard Trapp has submitted his reply to the District Court of Guam today. As we reported, Trapp filed a petition for a writ of prohibition asking for the legislative-submitted referendum on medicinal marijuana be taken off the general election ballot. The GEC in their response says Trapp lacks standing. In his reply, Trapp saying ever since Bill 215 became public law, he has been suffering an injury- the invasion of a legally protected interest. He further reiterates how the law is inconsistent with the organic act. Trapp says a "peremptory writ of prohibition should be issued prohibiting and restraining respondents from putting to the voters" the question of whether the medical use of cannabis be allowed on Guam.
