Top Five Most-Read Phoenix News Stories of the Week

 

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery's bad advice to County Supervisors on medical marijuana has resulted in less county control of dispensary locations.

The county is now prohibited from imposing any of its own restrictions on a planned dispensary for Sun City because the county failed to comply with a previous ruling on medical-marijuana zoning rules, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Michael Gordon ruled Wednesday.

Gordon's latest ruling follows a November 15 decision by the state Court of Appeals that seems to bode well for the future of Arizona's voter-approved medical-marijuana law.

It seems that inmates at Sheriff Joe Arpaio's jails will be going hungry this Thanksgiving, because the Turkey Day menu at gulag de Arpaio sounds absolutely inedible.

In years past, Arpaio used to make a song and dance about ponying up an extra six cents an inmate to serve them something that resembled a Thanksgiving meal. Not this year.
