Arizona’s Attorney General Targets Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Protected By State Law

In 2010, Arizona’s voters enacted the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act, which permits patients to use and clinics to provide medical cannabis without having to fear state prosecution, provided they obtain a permit from the state. The state began the process of distributing permits to clinics via lottery this week. However, in typical Arizona fashion, the State proceeds to act like the keystone cops as they scramble to find new roadblocks to deny the will of the people.

Despite the fact that Arizona law no longer authorizes lawful marijuana dispensaries to be targeted by state officials, Attorney General Tom Horne (R-AZ) doesn’t seem to have received the memo: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2012/08/10/671121/arizonas-attorney-general-targets-medical-marijuana-dispensaries-protected-by-state-law/?mobile=nc
