Supreme Court of California

In the People v. Randall Harris Wood, Mr. Hashim’s client was originally convicted of transportation of marijuana, for possessing several pounds of marijuana in the trunk of his car, while driving through San Mateo County. Mr. Wood was a qualified patient but was nevertheless arrested, and prosecuted. Mr. Wood was appointed an attorney and later proceeded to trial, where he was convicted. Mr. Hashim received Mr. Woods case thereafter, and prepared an appeal, arguing that the jury had been misinstructed by the judge, who told them that if Mr. Wood had more than the “county guidelines” allowed, without written permission for more, he should be convicted. Mr. Hashim lost his first level appeal on this point, in front of the California Court of Appeals. He thereafter filed a petition for review with the Californian Supreme Court, who agreed to hear the case along with two other cases, including the seminal decision in People v. Kelly, which established that county guidelines authorizing a particular amount of marijuana to be possessed by a qualified patient, could no longer be used at trial by the prosecution to undermine a defense under the Compassionate Use Act. The Supreme Court reversed the ruling of he Court of Appeals, effectively sending the case back down to the San Mateo Superior Court for a new trial in light of the Court’s ruling in Kelly. The San Mateo County District Attorney declined to retry Mr. Wood.
