The Arizona Supreme Court will review the legality of medical-marijuana concentrates in the state, the court decided on Tuesday, giving a boost of hope to patients and industry advocates.

“It’s definitely good news,” said Jared Keenan, a criminal justice staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union. “We’re hoping they overturn the opinion of the lower court, obviously, and protect patients.”

The medical-marijuana community has been on edge over the issue since June, when the state court of appeals ruled 2-1 that THC-bearing resin from marijuana plants, and the products that contain it, were not protected by the 2010 Arizona Medical Marijuana Act.
