And what theory is that? If you can consume 2-3 grams of cannabis a day and not experience any side effects then terrific, but like with any medication when taking high dosages most people will experience side effects. The likely side effects of this much cannabis include impaired cognitive functioning, for most people.
I'm not saying she is going to use 2-3 grams before class. I'm also not saying she would even use 2-3 grams per day. That figure was a break down from the 10,000 a year it will save, and how much 10,000 a year gets you, approximately. Her actual consumption is different because you waste a lot when cooking with it, and most of the time, she would only get high at night, after completing that day’s work. She will not have "impaired cognitive functioning" while doing legal work, but after she has finished. Also, most habitual smokers are not “impaired” the following day.
I don't know if you're a troll or not, but you've certainly contradicted yourself several times in this thread. I don't care. Talk to a lawyer.

LOL at this thread still going on.
I don't know why I think reiterating the same points posted by others may help, but I do and I am going to.
OP, what Marion and BK have said is basically, "check with a lawyer because they will have more insight on how the law is". I think that you are your friends are probably pretty spot on about how the law should be, but not necessarily how it is. So discussing with them may not be in your best interest in this case. You are about to put up 6 figures for a degree that may become nothing more than a piece of paper if you do something that is considered questionable by some. Is it right? Probably not; you didn't do anything illegal or immoral. But as it stands, there is a stigma associated with it and the consequences may be detrimental.
There were some jokes (damn funny ones, at that) that made it seem like Marion and BK were on the attack, but I think they posted some pretty genuine responses to your question and they seemed to have your best interest in mind.
I would be remiss if I didn't take this chance to make a drug joke here.

OP, there are no shortage of medical cannabis clubs in SF. Growing that much weed will make anyone (reasonably) suspect you're just selling. Don't do that.

Because if it is just someone who likes to smoke weed, with a card prescribed for some bs reason, in the very best case scenario they would be viewed as someone with a substance abuse problem which will likely present serious problems with the bar, independent of any legal implications.
I have a hard time envisioning anyone suffering from a condition that actually necessitates cannabis even being in a position to enter law school, much less performing at the level necessary to make law school a worthwhile investment. Also, if someone is smoking (conservatively) 1 gram a day, their cognitive performance will possibly be impaired enough to prevent them from doing well in law school anyway.
This is a load of FAIL!
Yes there is a legitimate need for the use in this case, as I have said. Also, there are other drugs that help, however, marijuana is far more effective (immediate relief, free because it can be grown, and very effective) than the other drugs for this person, and is the SAFEST (marijuana has never killed anyone, EVER)! Also, this person used marijuana for four years (every day) at one of the UC's, and graduated with a 3.9+ GPA. Using marijuana does not affect scholastic performance, unless you use it while testing, studying, etc, which can also be said for alcohol or any other prescription medicine. I can assure you that her law school success will not be affected by her marijuana use (unless it's from Hastings kicking her out).
Why say "one of the UCs"? Why not just say "UC Santa Cruz"?
