ACLU files suit over Lebanon County medical marijuana restrictions, hopes for statewide impact in ruling

The state chapter of the ACLU filed suit against the Lebanon County court system Tuesday over a policy barring those on probation or parole from using medical marijuana, even if they would otherwise be legally allowed to do so.
