Arizona Supreme Court Rules Medical Cannabis Allowed While on Probation

The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued two rulings prohibiting courts and prosecutors from denying medical cannabis use as a term of probation, provided that the individual has a valid medical cannabis card.

In one case, a man was convicted of possessing cannabis with the intent to sell, and was banned from using cannabis by his probation officer once he was released from prison.

In the second case, a woman plead guilty to a DUI, and in a plea deal that was eventually withdrawn, was told to abstain from cannabis use as a term of probation.

In both cases the individual was a valid medical cannabis patient, and in both cases the court ruled that courts and prosecutors have no legal right to prohibit the medical use of cannabis for a person on probation.
