LEGISlATIVE UPDATES

 

Concentrates in Arizona are in the crosshairs yet again! Despite the Welton case legalizing extractions, the Navajo County Superior Court has declared that moving forward hash oil in all its forms (wax, shatter, oils, tinctures, edibles, vape pens, etc.) is totally illegal under the AMMA and Patients, Caregivers and Dispensary Agents alike are now at risk of arrest, prosecution and penalty. Attorneys Tom Dean and Gary Smith of the Arizona Cannabis Bar Association will break down the ruling, the risks and the plan moving forward.
