Pot cases in Arizona getting dismissed because of Out-of-State Medical-Weed Cards

• New Times

Though the charges shouldn't have been brought against such marijuana card-holders in the first place, what's been happening in northwestern Arizona is a definite sign that "the times they are a changin'."

More than 10 possession cases have been dismissed in Mohave County in recent weeks because of Arizona's medical-marijuana law, Deputy County Attorney Regina Paulose tells New Times. All of the defendants were able to prove that they could legally use medical marijuana in their home state, typically California.

Under Arizona law, patients with pot cards from other states can legally possess up to 2 1/2 ounces marijuana in Arizona, though they won't be able to buy products from the dispensaries that'll be open in a few months.
