AZ Cannabis Law

AZ Cannabis Law Maricopa County Lawyer Bill Montgomery, a steadfast cannabis foe, and the Maricopa County Attorney’s Workplace continue to prosecute Arizona medical marijuana clients for ownership of marijuana extracts.

The American Civil Liberties Union( ACLU) of Arizona just recently found that Montgomery’s workplace has still been “prosecuting or threatening to prosecute “Arizona medical marijuana clients” for possessing marijuana items cost state-licensed dispensaries,” the < a href= "https://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/bill-montgomery-office-targeting-medical-marijuana-patients-11267081" target= "_ blank" rel=" noopener noreferrer" >

Phoenix New Times reported. ACLU of Arizona attorney, Jared Keenan, said they confirmed several circumstances where medical marijuana patients in Maricopa County were either being prosecuted or threatened with prosecution.

In a letter sent to Montgomery, the ACLU required he drop any prosecutions and hazards.

The Arizona Supreme Court is anticipated to officially rule on extracts within a couple of months. Arizona has permitted dispensaries to sell cannabis extracts because the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (AMMA) was carried out, and law enforcement has (typically) been enabling patients to possess extracts.

Till the Court guidelines on this extract issue, most Arizona dispensaries will likely continue to sell extracts to medical cannabis patients.
