An overturned ruling by an Arizona appellate court says that college students can possess medical marijuana on campuses.
The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act prohibits medical marijuana possession in schools, on school buses, and in prisons, reports 12 News. The law, however, didn’t include college or university campuses, so the court ruled that lawmakers can’t add colleges and universities because it would not “further the purpose” of the voter-approved law.
The State and landowners are still permitted to regulate what can be brought onto the campus grounds. Unless those restrictions are in place by the State or the landowner, students carrying an Arizona medical marijuana card cannot be barred from bringing their medical marijuana with them on campus.
Medical marijuana use on campuses is still presumed illegal.
