On January 15, 2015, the California Court of Appeals found that concentrated cannabis (hash) was covered under the Compassionate Use Act. The defendant was charged with possession of concentrated cannabis, and his defense was that he had a right to use the hashish under the CUA. The trial court disagreed and the defendant was found guilty of the charge at trial. The defendant appealed to a higher court, and the Court of Appeals found that concentrated cannabis qualifies as medical marijuana. The Attorney General who was defending the State agreed with the defendant and posed no opposition.
