VofReason most who have chronic pain are males between 25 to 40 who are blue collar workers. Construction workers, etc. I pray you never have to know what chronic pain is. Sign yourself up for some educational classes. or just look up the 500 research studies done world wide except in the U.S.

Even the AZ Supreme Court wold not let the State argue that Medical mj has no value; since the evidence Is out there that it Does have medical use-Hardesty v AZ
If you look at the cases in other states the majority of the time the state losses to the patient and state law.
In AZ on many state as well as the Feds one will do more time for a marijuana charge then rape, murder or child molestation-think their priorities are wrong? or maybe because there is no RICO law for rapist, murders or molesters.
Our State officials are our officials not Federal employees. Also there are some who are organizing to rid us of Montgomery & Horne-we will see9 months ago
Drug charges???? what about assault????9 months ago
Arizona voters battled lawmakers and leaders to finally bring medical marijuana to a vote in 1996. This measure passed with a 65% margin and our State Legislatures overturned that law. This forced citizens to bring Proposition 105 to a vote in 1998. The Arizona Voter Protection Actâ€ prevents our adversarial Governor and Legislature from vetoing or obstructing laws the people initiate and the voters approve. Arizonans had to won â€œvoter protectionâ€ from our public servants.
In 2010 Arizona citizens again forced another vote for Medical Marijuana and won in spite of an all out assault by our Community Leaders, Government and the Arizona Republic to defeat this law with a media scare campaign of misinformation.
Then Governor Brewer and Will Humble, Head of the Department of Health Services, waged a campaign to sabotage the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act and created an ambush of litigation to stop medical marijuana patients from having legal access. A Washington based group that wrote the sabotage into Proposition 203. Marijuana Policy Project MMP wrote the rules that crippled this law from the start. Judge Gamaâ€™s ruling has come back from the Arizona Courts regarding Governor Brewer and Will Humbleâ€™s attack on the medical marijuana law. His ruling continually defers to the will and intent of the voters: CV 2011-011290 01/17/2012 Judge Gama:
In construing a statute adopted by initiative, the Courtâ€™s primary objective â€œis to give effect to the intent of the electorate.
The voters passed Proposition 203 informed of marijuanaâ€™s therapeutic value in treating a wide array of debilitating medical conditions. Prop. 203, at Â§ 2(B). The voters intended to protect patients with those debilitating medical conditions (and their physicians and providers) â€œfrom arrest and prosecution, criminal and other penalties and property forfeiture if such patients engage in the medical use of marijuana.â€ Id. at Â§ 2(G). The voters contemplated this be done in 120 days.
We have a governor and the head of our State Health Department pouring through the language of Proposition 203 for any loophole they can find to continue this sabotage of the law and will of the people. This struggle between the citizens and our public servants shines a bright light on a problem that is much deeper than Corruption, Cancer or the Liberty to use Marijuana.
These murderers just don't want to give up their 41 year marijuana cash cow that made them so Fat and Sassy.
