Harborside Wins Again in Court

Magistrate Judge James allows sale of medical cannabis to continue at the Oakland dispensary, while US Attorney Melinda Haag’s forfeiture case goes to trial.

In possibly the first verdict of its kind, a federal judge has just allowed the world’s largest medical pot club to keep selling the federally illegal drug.

The stunning court victory occurred Monday when Harborside Health Center won the right to remain open while it fights federal forfeiture charges in the coming months and potentially years. US Magistrate Judge Maria-Elena James ruled in favor of the huge club, denying two motions for preliminary injunctions from Harborside’s landlords that would have forced an end to cannabis sales at Harborside’s Oakland and San Jose locations.
