High Court ruling takes the cake

I read the article in Thursday's paper about the State Supreme Court ruling that "People busted for marijuana can argue they needed it for medical reasons, even if they failed to follow the requirements of the state's medical marijuana law." Amazing, now people can ignore all requirements and, after they get caught, have a defense that they are innocent because they were eligible had they gone through the requirements! I thought about this and wonder if I park in a handicap only parking space without a permit and when caught, am I able to defend the ticket by saying I had a disability that would have qualified me a permit had I gone through the procedures to get one? What about other crimes?
Seems to me that this is just another example of the irresponsible being rewarded. Why does anyone bother to do what should be done?
