According to Arizona law, medical marijuana cultivators living within 25 miles of a dispensary won’t be allowed to grow medical marijuana.
The 25 mile rule is based on “as the crow flies,” so you could be on the other side of an impassable mountain range or the Grand Canyon, yet there is likely going to be awithin that 25 mile range of your home. This means that it could take you two hours or more to drive to that one dispensary that is within 25 miles of you. And that one dispensary is your only “convenient” and legal option for getting medical marijuana in Arizona.
Keith Floyd, an Arizona medical marijuana patient and grower, has initiated a civil action lawsuit against Arizona that is challenging the Constitutional legality of the 25 mile rule. He wants to abolish the 25 mile rule. Mr. Floyd is attempting to raise funds for his lawsuit and could use help from the Arizona medical marijuana community.
