Guam - The federal court has cleared the way for the medicinal marijuana initiative to be placed on the general election ballot.
In an order issued late this afternoon, Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood says petitioner Howard Trapp "has not demonstrated any concrete and particularized injury in fact that is distinguishable from the general interest of every citizen of Guam." The court further finds that Trapp lacks standing and therefore dismisses the petition.
As we reported, Trapp filed a writ of prohibition asking for the legislative-submitted referendum on medicinal marijuana be taken off the general election ballot.
Trapp tells KUAM he still believes the measure is illegal adding even if it gets approved by the people of Guam, it can still be challenged in the court.
