Arizona Supreme Court OKs Pot for Patients on Probation, Says No Federal Conflict
By Ray Stern
The Arizona Supreme Court ruled in two cases today that prosecutors can’t ban people on parole or probation from using medical marijuana.
Because medical marijuana is a medicine when used under the state’s voter-authorized program, the court stated in its opinions, patients should be allowed to use it — even when conditions of probation ban the consumption of alcohol.
Interestingly, as part of the rulings, the state’s highest court rejected the idea that the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act conflicted with federal law.
