Welton v. State of Arizona

According to the ACLU in Welton v. State of Arizona :
  • Zander Welton is a child with severe epilepsy. He had not been helped by two brain surgeries.
  • Zander holds a medical marijuana card, the application of which was approved by the Arizona Department of Health.
  • “[M]arijuana extract, in combination with dried marijuana, had reduced Zander's seizures dramatically, resulting in an unprecedented period of sustained relief.”
 
Despite all of the above, "law enforcement agencies, lead by Maricopa County Attorney William Montgomery, have indicated that they believe the AMMA does not allow patients like Zander to use marijuana extracts and that patients who do so will be criminally prosecuted."
