San Diego, CA:
Lawyers for the counties of San Diego and San Bernardino filed legal
briefs this week urging the Fourth District Court of Appeals to

county health departments are required to establish a voluntary

A previous San Diego Superior Court ruling had determined that the state’s ID card program was not in "positive conflict" with federal drug laws.
Oral arguments in the case are expected later this year.
The case is County of San Diego v San Diego NORML.
