Legit MMJ Cardholders Across The Country Need Not Fear — Arizona's Got Your Back

Posted By on Wed, Jul 10, 2013 at 9:46 AM

Good news to snowbirds who partake in medicinal reefer (because I get my weed lingo from the '50s) — Arizona's not going to take your stash away, so long as your credentials are legitimate.

I say this because the Arizona Supreme Court let stand a lower court ruling that forced the Yuma County sheriff to return confiscated marijuana from a California woman with an MMJ card.

From the Associated Press, via Phoenix's KSAZ:

The justices without comment on Monday declined to review a January ruling by the Court of Appeals.

The January ruling said medical marijuana seized from Valerie Okun must be returned to her.

It said that's because Arizona's medical marijuana law allows people with medical marijuana authorizations from other states to legally possess marijuana in Arizona.

Apparently the prosecution was arguing that federal drug law supersedes Arizona drug law — but they forgot that this is the state that apparently gives not one shit about federal laws that we don't like...right, Gov'nah Brewer?
