Appeal: Ottawa wants the B.C. Appeal Court to overturn a lower-court ruling that allows such users to ingest their marijuana as they choose

BY IAN MULGREW, VANCOUVER SUN COLUMNIST DECEMBER 6, 2013

B.C.’s highest judges are mulling whether there’s a constitutional right to tasty pot cookies and other marijuana products such as infused oils, balms and lotions.
