Upcoming Medical Marijuana Events in Arizona

April 2, 2011

Good Evening,

Wow, the month of March went by very quickly. The final regulations from the Department of Health governing Patients, Caregivers, Dispensaries and Dispensary Agents are out and they are an improvement. I am concerned, however, that these regulations, fees, and requirements are onerous and going to prevent access to Marijuana – the safest therapuetic substance known to man. Only time will tell how this program will come together and whether the state will help this program or hinder it. Did you know that Colorado medical marijuana fees are helping to close Colorado’s budget deficit? Recent changes have thrown the whole Colorado medical marijuana program into jeopardy, click here to help.

Thanks for getting involved and helping AZ4NORML get the word out.

Sensible Tucson is collecting signatures to place an important initiative on the city ballot. This initiative would reduce the penalties for possession of marijuana and the tools related to it, to a petty offense with a fine of not more than $75. Stop by any AZ4NORML function and sign to place this on the ballot.

Our friend, Robert Platshorn is hosting a preview of his movie Square Grouper at Harkins Scottsdale. This is a great movie about marijuana smuggling, in Florida, in the 1970’s and 80’s. Bob spent many years in prison for a nonviolent marijuana and now is president of a NORML chapter in Florida. Check out the trailer.
