Arizona Neck Deep in Marijuana Regulation

The vote has long since come in and Arizona voters clearly wanted to see a bit of pot around Phoenix, though only for medical purposes. Now it falls on legislators to make clear exactly what's okay – college research, lable regulations, crop cultivation – and what isn't, but it will be a complicated fight to keep all parties satisfied.

Arizona lawmakers want to overhaul the state's medical marijuana law.


One lawmaker would shut down dispensaries that use unclear labels for its food products. Another measure would allow colleges and universities to conduct medical marijuana research. A third would allow county zoning ordinances to apply to marijuana cultivation.


"It was the voters that clearly supported medical marijuana in Arizona, so it's the job of the Legislature to ensure that the law is being implemented properly," said Sen. Kimberly Yee, R-Phoenix.
