Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar has recommended against the U.S. Supreme Court taking up the Susan K. Musta vs Mendota Heights Dental Center case around whether insurers should provide workers compensation benefits for legal medical cannabis, according to a filing on Monday. "The legislative and executive branches of the federal government are best situated to consider any potential tailored measures to address specific instances of interaction between federal and state marijuana laws," Prelogar said. "Refraining from taking up the questions presented here thus represents the sounder course at this time." The recommendation comes after the U.S. Supreme Court in February invited Prelogar to file a brief in the case to express the views of the United States.
