From the Associated Press this morning:
KALISPELL, Mont. – Two men behind a lawsuit that aimed to clarify state law on the transfer of medical marijuana between caregivers have pleaded no contest to felony criminal possession with intent to distribute.
Robin Ruiz and Lief Erickson were arrested Feb. 3 after officers found more than three pounds of marijuana in their vehicle.
The Medical Marijuana Growers Association sued Flathead County Attorney Ed Corrigan, claiming that the men were legally transferring marijuana as a registered caregiver and patient.
District Judge Stewart Stadler ruled in July that the Medical Marijuana Act only allows caregivers to transfer marijuana to patients.
The Daily Inter Lake reports Erickson signed a plea agreement on Monday and Ruiz changed his plea Thursday.
