AZ: Phoenix Police Bust Unlicensed Medical Marijuana Dispensary

July 20th

PHOENIX, AZ — Police in Phoenix, Arizona say they arrested three men for pretending to operate a medical marijuana dispensary Friday.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson issued a statement saying officers served a search warrant Friday evening at what appears to be an unlicensed, illegal medical dispensary.

According to the statement, operators did not have a valid business license or a state-issued medical marijuana dispensary permit.

Police say they seized marijuana and marijuana edibles including brownies, muffins and candies.  Several weapons were also seized, according to police.

The three men arrested were Kenneth Winans, 52, Hernan Vega, 40, and Jeremy Skidmore, 34.  All three were booked at the Maricopa County Jail.

All three men will face charges for illegally controlling an enterprise and possession of marijuana for sale.  Vega and Skidmore also face additional charges of being in possession of a firearm during a drug offense.

Under Arizona’s 2010 voter approved medical marijuana law, non-profit medical marijuana dispensaries must be licensed by the Arizona Department of Public Health. Patients and caregivers may not grow their own medical marijuana unless they live more than 25 miles from a registered dispensary.

Arizona Supreme Court to Police: Give Medical Marijuana Back to Patients

July 10th

PHOENIX —  Medical marijuana patients who have their medicine confiscated by police are legally entitled to get it back, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled Monday, rejecting arguments by prosecutors.

The justices declined to review a challenge to a January ruling by The Arizona Court of Appeals, who ruled that the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office must return marijuana confiscated from a California medical marijuana patient in 2011.  By refusing to review the case, the Supreme Court upheld the ruling of the lower court without comment.

Valerie Okun, a California resident permitted to use medical marijuana, was cited for violating Arizona drug laws in 2011, when authorities confiscated marijuana from her at a border checkpoint near Yuma. Those charges were later dismissed after she provided her California medical marijuana authorization to court officials.

Arizona’s 2010 voter approved medical marijuana law allows reciprocity to patients from other medical marijuana states, honoring their medical marijuana cards and allowing medical marijuana patients visiting Arizona to possess up to two and a half ounces of cannabis.

After Okun’s charges were dropped, she asked the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office to return her medicine, a request that was granted by the court. The Yuma County Sheriff, however, argued th. . . . . READ MORE

2014 Marijuana Legalization Initiatives Underway in Three States

June 18th

The race to be the next state to legalize marijuana at the ballot box is on. Activists in three states — Alaska, Arizona, and Oregon — have taken initial steps to get the issue before the voters during the 2014 general election.

In Alaska, Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell last Friday certified a ballot initiative application that would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by adults. Backed by the Marijuana Policy Project, the initiative would also set up a system of taxed and regulated marijuana commerce. Adults could grow up to six marijuana plants for their personal use.

Proponents will have one year to gather 30,169 valid voter signatures to qualify for the ballot. But they have to wait a week or so for the state elections division to begin printing the petition booklets.

Alaska already allows for adults to possess small amounts of marijuana in their homes under the state Supreme Court’s interpretation of the state constitution’s privacy provisions.

In Arizona, Safer Arizona is sponsoring an initiative to amend the state constitution to allow for legal, taxed, and regulated marijuana use and commerce. The group READ MORE
