"Pass over"??

Nice try.

CA has an actual official medical marijuana card issued upon doctor’s certification of medical need. Local ‘dispensaries’ will sell you a card, which is not CA official, but both are frequently accepted by local police to avoid an arrest for small possession. It is a Politically Correct fiction in California only, not honored or binding upon federal law enforcement or courts, or in any other state.
