Arizona Passes Medical Marijuana Law
Marijuana legalization advocates claimed a big victory in the recent election results in Arizona, where the state finally approved a medical marijuana bill. Marijuana Policy Project helped draft and lobby for the bill. Arizona is now the 15th US state with a medical marijiana law.
“Proposition 203 allows for the establishment of about 120 tightly run, state-regulated clinics that will dispense marijuana to qualified patients in Arizona. Patients who live more than 25 miles from a clinic will be allowed to grow their own medicine. The other jurisdictions with medical marijuana laws are Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Oregon, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington state, and the District of Columbia.”
