Arizona Judge Won’t Lift Medical Marijuana Restrictions for PTSD

Arizona Daily Star:  “A judge has rejected efforts by a marijuana advocacy group to quash limits set by the Department of Health Services on how and when patients with post-traumatic stress disorder can legally use the drug. In a ruling Wednesday, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Crane McClennen said there was ‘substantial evidence’ to support the restrictions imposed last year by Will Humble, who was state health chief at the time. And McClennen said adopting the views of the Arizona Cannabis Nurses Association that the restrictions are inappropriate would amount to requiring him to substitute his own judgment for that of the health chief, something he legally cannot do.”
