TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/13 -- The Ontario Court of Appeal released its decision today in the case of R. v. Mernagh. The Court ruled that the trial judge erred in declaring the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations, and prohibitions against the possession and production of cannabis (marihuana) contained in sections 4 and 7 of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, constitutionally invalid and of no force and effect.
The Court also overturned the permanent stay of the charge against Matthew Mernagh for production of marihuana and ordered a new trial.
