Don't you just love the media? It is obvious that blindness is the least of
this woman's concerns, and certainly has nothing to do with this lawsuit,
but the headline says "Blind woman sues to keep pot dispensary open."    
It amazes me sometimes.

Blind woman sues to keep pot dispensary open Posted at 06:44 AM on
Wednesday, May. 19, 2010 The Associated Press SANTA ANA, Calif. A blind
woman with cerebral palsy, epilepsy and osteoporosis has filed a lawsuit in
an attempt to stop Dana Point officials from closing a medical marijuana
collective where she gets pot to cope with her maladies.

Attorney Jeffrey Schwartz says 29-year-old Malinda Traudt needs marijuana to
manage pain that couldn't be controlled with other drugs without serious
side effects.

The Orange County Superior Court lawsuit, filed Tuesday on behalf of Traudt
and her mother, says Traudt gets marijuana from the Beach Cities Collective
in Dana Point. The city has targeted medical pot dispensaries for closure. 

Judges have ruled cities can use zoning laws to shut them down because
federal law classifies marijuana as an illegal narcotic.
