The Arizona Senate committee has officially approved a bill which allows law enforcement to legally destroy medical marijuana seized during investigations.
The bill was created in order to clarify and protectenforcement officers from getting caught between federal and state regarding marijuana. Senator Kimberly Yee and a few others are trying to pass multiple bills related to the medical marijuana industry.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is fighting again the destruction of seized medical marijuana because the state constitution bars legislators from messing with voter-approved laws like the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (AMMA).

Although Arizona citizens voted and passed the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act in 2010, some state officials are still wasting taxpayers’ time and money on personal vendettas by opposing the voter-approved medical marijuana law. A bill proposed earlier this month by Republican Rep. John Kavanagh could be challenging the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act in the November 2014 ballet.
The bill filed by Rep. Kavanagh seeks to revoke the entire Arizona Medical Marijuana Act because Rep. Kavanagh’s personal discrimination of marijuana leads him to believe that Arizonans were misled in regards to the impact of legalizing marijuana for medical purposes.
Although there are hundreds-of-thousands of medical marijuana patients around the country that know medical marijuana helps with their medical condition(s), Rep. Kavanagh claims that the majority of Arizona medical marijuana cardholders have received their card for chronic pain. And Rep. Kavanagh says that chronic pain is “subjective, ill-defined and easily faked.” Apparently Rep. Kavanagh doesn’t truly comprehend the words: sympathetic, unbiased, or logical. Nor does he seem to understand that he is supposed to be working for the people of Arizona, and not fighting against them.
It is obvious that Rep. Kavanagh has no empathy for people with chronic pain–those people also happen to be the people who pay his salary and elected him into office–and now he defies medical marijuana chronic pain patients by openly calling them frauds. Chronic pain suffers–whether it be the elderly, veterans, or anyone with a disability–that seek natural pain relief via medical marijuana are liars and-abusing scammers in the eyes of Rep. Kavanagh.
By law, the Arizona Department of Health Services has to periodically accept petitions to add new qualifying medical conditions to the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act.
Last year’s petition included depression, migraines, generalized anxiety disorder, PTSD 1, and PTSD 2. The Department of Health Services hired the University of Arizona’s College of Public Health to do a study on the effectiveness of marijuana at treating those medical conditions. After reviewing the study, the Department of Health Services decided there was a “lack of published data regarding the risks and benefits of using Cannabis to treat or provide relief for the petitioned conditions.” Therefore, none of the petitioned medical conditions were included in the Act.
During the week of January 25 – 31, petitions will be accepted again. Arizonans will be able to vote for the opportunity to add new qualifying medical conditions to the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act by visiting the azdhs.gov website.
, Tucson’s second medical marijuana to open has begun selling medical marijuana-infused foods – also known as or medibles. The ebibles currently being cooked in Green Halo dispensary’s infusion kitchen are hard candies, brownies, and cookies.
Many medical marijuana patients enjoy being able to medicate by eating food rather than smoking. Edibles provide the perfect remedy for the patient who prefers not to smoke. With edibles, a patient can simply take a cookie or brownie or candy with them if they go out in public. When they need to medicate, they can conveniently eat the, which is inconspicuous. Whereas smoking medical marijuana in public can cause discrimination and/or arrest.
All Arizonahave the right to apply for and open an infusion kitchen license, thus allowing them to create edibles legally. In time, most, if not all dispensaries will have infused kitchens producing medical marijuana edibles for medical marijuana patients.
