ACLU joins lawsuit supporting Ariz. marijuana law

The American Civil Liberties Union is joining a lawsuit pushing for full implementation of Arizona’s medical marijuana law, AP reports.

The national ACLU and its Arizona affiliate are now helping represent a company suing Maricopa County over its refusal to provide zoning clearances for a medical marijuana dispensary to serve Sun City.

State and county prosecutors have asked a Maricopa County Superior Court judge to rule that the state’s voter-approved law is illegal on grounds that it conflicts with federal drug law.

A response filed Thursday by ACLU lawyers and another attorney for White Mountain Health Center says Arizona is allowed to make policy decisions on medical marijuana.

A judge has scheduled an Oct. 19 hearing on the case.
