Breaking story by the Honolulu Star Advertiserʻs Ken Kobayashi (sorry, it is behind a paywall…will post more links as other news sources also cover the story):
“The Hawaii Supreme Court has overturned the conviction of a Hawaii island medical marijuana user who was found with a small amount of cannabis at Kona Airport.
Geoffrey Woodall had a valid medical marijuana certificate but was still convicted under state laws for the two grams of marijuana discovered when he went through airport security screening.
In a 4-1 ruling Friday, the justices held that a conflict in state laws on the issue must be resolved in favor of Woodhall.
The majority said he must be acquitted.”
