Medical Marijuana in Arizona

Medical cannabis use was signed into law in 2011. Patients may possess two and one-half ounces of usable marijuana. Home cultivation is allowed if residence is further than 25 miles from a state-licensed dispensary facility. No more than twelve marijuana plants in an "enclosed, locked facility." State-licensed nonprofit dispensaries may produce and dispense marijuana to authorized patients on a not-for-profit basis. The act provides a limited reciprocity to 'visiting qualifying patients'. More details may be found at the Arizona Dept. of Public Health site.
