As we’ve reported before, Arizona law allows for medical marijuana dispensaries around the state, but one county has been fighting a battle against legal pot shops (and private patients). Of course, it’s Maricopa County, so nobody is really that surprised.
Thankfully, the fight for a medical-marijuana dispensary on unincorporated Maricopa County land won a key victory on Wednesday with the Board of Supervisors lifting its ban on the shops. But the five Supervisors — one Democrat and four Republicans — and the county attorney continue to see the case as their ticket to overturning the state’s voter-approved medical-pot law. The good people at the Phoenix New Times have the details.
