4.) Medical-Pot Edibles Are Legal, but Prosecutors and Cops Aren't Backing Off
Foodstuffs infused with marijuana concentrates always were supposed to be part of the package when voters approved Proposition 203, the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act, in 2010. Supporters said at the time that one reason patients would be allowed to possess so much pot -- they can buy 2.5 ounces every two weeks and possess up to 2.5 ounces at a time -- was because some patients preferred infusing concentrated forms of the medicine into food rather than smoking. However, cops and prosecutors took another look at the Arizona criminal code and found a loophole for themselves.
