received a DUI. Have my Medical canabis reconmendationw from an ND.
You should ask the attorney who handled the case. Since he/she will now the specific judgment the court gave you when you were convicted. In most cases the court order you not to consume any drugs or alcohol. Additionally a caninis script from ND may not be valid in Wa. Talk to you attorney.
The law that allows you to possess or use marijuana for medical purposes in Washington requires a valid medical marijuana prescription from a Washington health care provider. Probation may be able to limit the use of marijuana even if you have a prescription. There are Constitutional issues of equal protection that have not been decided in this state that are clouded by the fact that possession of marijuana is illegal under federal law in all states. You will need a creative attorney to help you with this. In the meantime bet a Washington medical marijuana card and follow the requirements of your probation.
There is no new law about a prescription from an ND. However, the medical marijuana law specifically leaves it up to courts and probation departments to decide whether to allow people under court supervision to use medical marijuana. The law allows courts to tell people on probation that they cannot use medical marijuana. In Bellingham in particular, the city/municipal court has taken a stance that the use of medical marijuana is generally not allowed unless you can show the judge why it is necessary. The court is generally not viewing medical marijuana favorably. Other courts may view the issue differently.
