State vs. Federal Law

I represent over 600 sick people who are members of the medical marijuana cannabis club. The people of the state of California approved the growth and consumption of marijuana for medicinal use. Yet, how do you find it without breaking the law? As a solution, a business license issued from the local Fairfax authorities allows me to dispense cannabis to critically ill persons. Still, the Federal authorities will not admit that marijuana is medicine, and have filed a lawsuit to force me to stop dispensing, endangering the most sick of all.
