The debate relating to the legality of marijuana extracts (hashish) in Arizona continues, and, on Jan 8, the Arizona Supreme Court stated it has accepted identify whether marijuana extracts are legal under the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (AMMA).
Will Humble, who was the director of the Arizona Department of Health Providers when the voter-approved marijuana law passed, revealed through affidavit to the Court that he constantly believed the AMMA allowed for alternate kinds of marijuana, such as extracts, the < a href= "https://tucson.com/news/local/arizona-high-court-to-decide-legality-of-marijuana-extracts-in/article_ea52e9c4-1746-587d-b6e1-71c801215c80.html" target=" _ blank “rel=” noopener” >
Arizona Daily Star reported. The AMMA defines “functional marijuana” as “the dried flowers of the cannabis plant, and any mixture or preparation thereof, but does not include the seeds, stalks and roots of the plant.”
The Arizona Department of Health Solutions has actually enabled state-licensed dispensaries to offer extracts considering that the AMMA was implemented and police throughout Arizona (except for in Yavapai County) has been enabling patients to use and have cannabis extracts.
So, up until the Court guidelines on the extract law in Arizona, dispensaries will continue to sell extracts and medical marijuana patients can continue to purchase them (however avoid Yavapai County).
A date for the Court’s hearing has not been set.
