The Kansas Court of Appeals says marijuana obtained legally in another state is still illegal in Kansas.
The ruling comes in the case of a Colorado man who was stopped in Kansas with medical marijuana he was legally prescribed in his home state. A Kansas judge acquitted the man of a misdemeanor charge of illegally possessing marijuana. The state appealed the acquittal.
That lead to Friday's ruling that Kansas has the right to enforce its own drug laws even when marijuana was obtained legally elsewhere.
