Arizona Medical Marijuana Restriction Bill Pulled
According to AZCentral.com, Representative Jay Lawrence out of Scottsdale, pulled his bill that would have banned naturopaths and homeopaths from writing prescriptions for marijuana. The bill would also require patients to renew cards every six months and punish those cardholders who sell or give the drug to kids.
