The Oakland cooperative has been at the forefront of California's medicinal marijuana debate ever since it was the only one of six Northern California clubs to appeal a federal judge's 1998 closure order.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year told that judge to reconsider, and the judge last month ruled the cooperative could start dispensing again because the government failed to dispute a medical necessity for marijuana despite its prohibition under federal law.
