Title: ACLU Lawsuit in California Could Clarify Local Power After Legalization:Is a major California county thwarting state legalization by restricting the right to home grow?

A lawsuit against the small southern California city of Fontana could determine just how much local officials can push back on state laws legalizing cannabis. The American Civil Liberties Union and Drug Policy Alliance are challenging the city’s personal cultivation permit requirements, which bar those convicted of a recent felony related to a controlled substance or people who have accrued city fines from growing cannabis at home — a core part of the state’s legalization.
The question of local power has become one of the most fundamental and tense political dynamics playing out in the United States and Canada as cannabis is legalized.
