Remember how the court was ruling on whether or not marijuana was legal, and they decided, that yes, it was legal, at least for the past 2 years but now it's illegal again? Well, to do that the governement would have to ammend the laws (again) and guess what? Again, they didn't amend them as much as the court says they had to to make the pot laws constitutional, so it looks like a whole new constitutional challenge (actually pretty much the same one I guess) is coming. Expect more confusion, as it looks like marijuana is legal right now, but you could still be arrested and charged!
The following is from cannabisculture.com
"Also on Monday, Canada's Federal Government released new medpot guidelines. The guidelines were ordered changed by the Ontario Court of Appeal. The new rules, however, flouted the Ontario Court of Appeal's order, only partially enacting the changes ordered by the court. Pot patients can now pay their suppliers cash in return for medicine, and will only need the signature of one specialist to get a medpot exemption, but Health Canada preserved a part of the regulations that allows a grower to only grow for one patient, and only three patients to grow together. In its ruling, the Ontario Court of Appeal had ordered the government to remove such restrictions.
The predictable result of such moves is more legal wrangling.
Since the Canadian government has failed to fully implement the order of the court, which would have fixed constitutional problems with Canada's pot possession laws, Canadian activists - like Tim Meehan of Ontario Consumers for Safe Access to Recreational Cannabis - are hailing the coming season as the "Winter of Legalization." For if Canada's pot possession laws are unconstitutional, prosecutions are bound to fail. Meanwhile, renowned pot-law expert Alan Young has announced that he will mount a law suit against the Federal Government for contempt of court."
