Arizona medical-marijuana patient sues over raid

Arizona medical-marijuana patient sues over raid A Phoenix woman claims in a lawsuit that police violated Arizona’s medical-marijuana laws when they seized a marijuana-infused oil during a March raid of her home.

The Arizona Republic reports that medical-marijuana patient Charise Voss Arfa claims police wrongfully considered the oil labeled “Soccer Moms Tincture” a narcotic instead of marijuana.

A tincture is typically an alcoholic extract of plant or animal material or solution.

State officials say patients participating in Arizona’s medical-marijuana program will be allowed to buy and possess items containing marijuana such as brownies and oils through dispensaries, but are only allowed to grow plants or have caregivers grow for them because no dispensaries are yet open.

The state can set up and regulate up to 126 dispensaries, although none has yet opened.
