Ny Times: Arizona Tries To Keep Reins Tight As It Starts Regulating Medical Marijuana

Interesting that Arizona perceives the out of state business interest as an asset and not interfering with the local economy. Also interesting is the way in which the health department utilized facebook to close loopholes they would not have known about, until viewed on facebook. After all the interference from the Governor, is this program really set up with patient’s interest in mind?     Ny Times: Arizona Tries To Keep Reins Tight As It Starts Regulating Medical Marijuana   By FERNANDA S

Patient, Caregiver Mistreatment Violates Michigan's Medical Marihuana Act

In November of 2008, the residents of the state of Michigan were heard, overwhelmingly approving the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act with a nearly two-thirds vote.

Patients and caregivers are constantly harassed and arrested, despite going to great lengths to comply with the act.   The state's failure to provide registration cards in a time
