In da patent biz, that's a no-no. You can't patent anything that can only be used to break the law.

Like a poison exclusively designed to kill US Presidents. (Uh, I think that's against the law.)

It might be novel, and perhaps even highly marketable, but it would not be patentable.

So that marijuana patent is void on it's face. All it takes is one little suit to bust it.

WHy 'bust' it? If it's an undefendable patent, then it's effectively open source. Leave well enough alone.
