Gov. Jan Brewer explains why she has directed Attorney General Tom Horne to ask a federal court to decide if Arizona can enforce its new medical marijuana law despite federal statutes making possession, sale and transportation of the drug illegal.

Amazing how quick they forget "WE THE PEOPLE......." or forget that for the last year they've been telling the Feds to stay out of their lawbooks because they want to send the wetbacks home.
This is a dictionary picture example of the word hypocrisy.
I have voted Republican for many many years. I have liked some of the things that President Obama and his admin stration have done and was seriously thinking of voting for him. BUT, leave the medical marijuana issue to the STATES. All that money that is being diverted to go after seriously sick people- use it to go after CRIMINALS. I thought I might vote for the Prez in 12', but I doubt that now.
Please do the right thing about medical marijuana and allow the states to implement the program without Federal interference.Kudos on Bin Laden
Does anyone in this administration have sense enough to research federal laws before your governor signs laws written by our inept legislators or puts them on the ballot??
Our Governor cherry picks which Federal laws she likes and wants to support. She ignores the will of the people. She wants fight them on immigration and ignore federal law.
Why is the listed under the Drug War is it not he war on We the People?
California isnt worried about federal law. This Governor isa the dumbest politician in the state. YOU MORONS who voted for her deserve this ditzy dumb a*& for a Governor. What has she ever done? Nothing. If sb1070 and her racist kronies didnt pass that she would have been gone. SHE IS AN IDIOT !
If this could be controlled and marketed by the liquor or tobacco industry it would be a done deal. But because they have no control over the production or distribution they make it illegal. But it is OK to go to any corner store or drive through liquor store and but booze. Just goes to show that the reason pot was made illegal in the first place was to arrest Mexicans and Blacks. If you don’t believe this do a little research on your own. Don’t take the word of our so called paid off elected officials. One more example of our rights being taked away by our Corrupt Government. TIME FOR A SWEEPING CHANGE OF ELECTED OFFICALS IN WASHINGTON AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT...
It is important to recognize the will of the Arizona voters in passing the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (AMMA) under proposition 203. The issue is that Arizonans could essentially be stripped of their choice in medicine while a declaratory judgement is considered. In the meantime, the state could very well privatize the registry program while the validity of state and federal law is debated; therefore ensuring patients have a choice in how they alleviate pain and suffering.
Fortunately for patients, caregivers can still provide medicine to their patients in AZ, but a medical marijuana center or dispensary model, ensures quality, safety, and regulation of this emerging industry which has been blessed by the voters in 16 states and counting!
Let's make this about the patient! Get involved today!
The Medical Marijuana Assistance Program of America (MMAPA) works to ensure patients have access to affordable alternative treatment throughout the nation. We work with hospice patients, the indigent, and disabled veterans to ensure no patient is left behind when it comes to a choice in medicine.

This whole legalization issue is stupid!!!!!!!!!!! You can tell me how good it is for some people or that it is no worse than alcohol and I will not disagree but if I can smell it then my own rights to a clean smelling townhouse are being violated. I have had to deal with happy smoke from someone elses domain before and I really prefer not to and I should not have to. Nor should my healthy, drug free children and grandchildren have to put up with it when they visit. Just because this law passed and may possibly be implemented does not give a prescription holder the absolute right to infringe on my clean air. It's bad enough I have to constantly put up with leaf blowers.
You will never get Medical Marijuana in AZ as long as Brewer and Horne are in power.
Next election , send this wicked witch back to OZ
