PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Oregon Court of Appeals has ruled that medical marijuana authorized in California should stay in California.
Joel Berringer was convicted in Oregon of possessing of two pounds of marijuana. He was arrested during a traffic stop for speeding in 2006.
He argued that his letter from a California doctor authorizing him to use medical marijuana should be good in Oregon. But the Oregon Court of Appeals said Wednesday that Oregon does not enforce California's medical marijuana laws.
Oregon has its own medical marijuana law, but it didn't play a role in Berringer's case.
