@ Marmaru; The Bill of Rights does not say what you claim it does; no doubt you learned about the Constitution in an Arizona public school. Federal law always supersedes state law, no exceptions. States rights were abolished at the time of the US Civil War, and rightfully so. Dec 19, 2011
Since the so-called Medical Marijuana law was based on a fraud, it has no legal standing. There is no medical problem that Marijuana can treat and in other states that perpetuate this fraud, it's used by addicts complaining of "pain".
If you want to get high, do a campaign for legalizing it. Claiming it's for medical reasons is fraud, and so no such law exists. Dec 19, 2011
The human remains aren't the property of the Navajo Nation. For one thing, it isn't a nation, it's an Indian reservation, and that's under federal jurisdiction. Like it or not, Native Americans are US citizens, and the sovereignty issue died 1 1/2 centuries ago. Second, National Monuments belong to all Americans, not one ethnic group. Thirdly, if the remains are of ancient people, then they're not Navajo. The Navajos arrived in their current area from NW Canada 5-7 centuries ago; the remains would belong to Pueblo Indians such as the Hopis, if it belongs to any Native American tribe. The Navajo reservation doesn't have a case on any level and the lawsuit should be dismissed out of hand. Dec 19, 2011
After posting my comment, I just read the others already posted. Shameful and disgraceful is the nicest thing one can say about those posts. Nov 29, 2011
Best Arizona news I've read in years. Well done for working on this, Hospital groups. Nice someone has their priorities and moral obligations straight. Nov 29, 2011
Arizona continues it's national role as "the meth lab of democracy".
Juggernut, your trollish, adolescent comment had nothing to do with the subject of the article.
Leon, if you live in Arizona, then like all Arizonans, you do business with an illegal immigrant daily, whether you visit a supermarket, a restaurant, a hotel, or have work done on your home or office. Their work ethics are better, so no big deal.

Come now, there's no "epic shake up". The government here is virtually all Republican already, and re- mapping districts isn't going to change anything significant. Oct 13, 2011
Arizona; the meth lab of democracy. Where else would a neo-nazi sympathizer be the most powerful politician in the state? Jul 25, 2011
The Health Director, Will Humble, is a disgrace to his position. As Medical Marijuana is a fraud, unrecognized by any valid medical organization, his encouraging this travesty makes him unfit to be head of the DHS, or for that matter, any public position. If he were an honorable man, he would have resigned in protest when this "law", a violation of federal law, passed.
If a person has a real medical condition, they should see a doctor (and I don't mean a "script doctor" or "dr feelgood" type of criminal with a medical degree) and get actual medical treatment. Marijuana doesn't do anything for any medical condition except getting you high so you don't care you're sick. Apr 14, 2011
