The recent judicial decision casts uncertainty across a growing segment of the state’s medical marijuana industry.

Dozens of medical marijuana patients and their families congregated outside the Arizona State Capitol in downtown Phoenix July 3 to denounce a recent Arizona Court of Appeals ruling that the state’s medical marijuana law does not permit the use of cannabis extract products, like oil cartridges. The court refers to those products collectively as “hashish” or “the resin extracted from the marijuana plant,” and insists that the state law “in no way immunizes the possession or use of hashish.”
Now, a growing segment of the medical marijuana industry in Arizona is thrown into uncertainty.
Medical marijuana patient Deb Estrada told Fox 10 at the rally that she “can’t believe that people are not able to take their medication in their chosen delivery method.”
