Will Humble, the director of the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), is stepping down on March 3 after 23 years working for the state.
“This has been an awesome job,” wrote Humble on the Arizona Department of Health Services’ Director’s Blog. He went on to mention: “Careers have a life cycle. Figuring out when it’s time to turn the page and move on to something else is a hard thing to do. That time has come for me.”
Humble has yet to name an interim or permanent director for the ADHS, but a decision is expected within a week.
Humble constantly fought against the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (AMMA) during his time at the ADHS. Humble tried to make Arizona’s medical marijuana laws stricter and continually denied legitimate petitions to add qualifying conditions to the AMMA.
