US: With passage of Prop 203, Arizona becomes 15th medical marijuana state
    #497957 - 11/14/10 01:50 PM (10 years, 2 months ago)

The Examiner

Saturday 13 Nov 2010

As of Friday November 12th, at 5:35 pm, it appears that Arizona's Proposition 203 has passed, by the slim margin of only 4421 votes, making Arizona the 15th state to allow the medical use of marijuana.

Under Proposition 203, doctors in Arizona will be able to 'recommend' medical marijuana to patients suffering from certain "debilitating medical conditions." Proposition 203 also creates dispensaries to supply these patients with their medical marijuana, enabling patients to purchase up to 2-1/2 ounces every two weeks; the number of dispensaries are liimited to one dispensary per 10 pharmacies. If patients do not live within 25 miles of a dispensary, then they will also be able to grow their own medical marijuana.

Oregon also looked at medical marijuana dispensaries with Measure 74, which failed 44% to 56%. While Multnomah County (primarily the city of Portland) showed overwhelming support for medical marijuana dispensaries, the remainder of the state rejected the measure. Opposition to Oregon's Measure 74 indicated some concerns with limits on the number of dispensaries and limits on how much marijuana patients could purchase over a period of time. Opponents to Measure 74 indicated that "without a state-imposed limit on the number of dispensaries, Oregon would have more marijuana than needed, encouraging illicit sale."

While it remains unclear if such limits were a determining factor in passage of Prop 203, it will not be surprising to see such limits considered in future attempts to allow medical marijuana dispensaries in Oregon (and likely elsewhere). When the Oregon legislature meets in January, Representative Peter Buckley is expected to introduce language for a dispensary system - which is likely to include stricter limits than those in Measure 74.
