Arizona: Maricopa County drops charges against medical marijuana patient busted with infused candy


An Arizona medical marijuana patient had purchased a Tootsie Pop-like candy at a local “compassion club” that isn’t approved by the state to sell marijuana. Maricopa County attorney Bill Montgomery’s office tried to use the case to advance the elected official’s belief that voters did not authorize patients to use concentrated marijuana when they approved the state’s medical-pot law in 2010.
Now, it seems, Montgomery probably wishes he hadn’t done that. Phoenix New Times has the details.
