Brewer and Horne Put Medicinal Marijuana Dispensaries on Hold

Posted By on Tue, May 24, 2011 at 3:53 PM

The timing of this is suspicious, as is the state's off-and-on desire to avoid federal interference. Mess with immigration policy and we'll dump whatever amount of money it takes into the fight for self-determination. When the voters approve legislation that right-wing social conservative types don't like but seems to work under a memo by Eric Holder, cave as quickly as possible:

Gov. Jan Brewer plans to put Arizona's new medical marijuana plan on hold as she seeks guidance from a federal court on whether state employees regulating the program could face prosecution.

Brewer said Tuesday that state Attorney General Tom Horne will file a lawsuit Friday seeking a declaratory judgment about the legality of Arizona's medical marijuana program.

The program went into effect last month, but isn't up and running yet.

According to Tom Horne, dispensary licenses will be on hold until a decision is made, although he could not predict when that might be.
