Chronic Truth

By a narrow margin in the November 2010 election, state voters passed the historic Arizona Medical Marijuana Act. The new law, actually Arizona's second medical pot measure, allows qualified patients to possess up to 2 ½ ounces of weed legally and grow up to 12 plants for their personal use. Voters also approved the opening of more than 100 marijuana dispensaries around the state. But Governor Jan Brewer put a halt to the dispensary industry in May and sued the state in a federal lawsuit. New Times has covered every angle of the rise and partial fall of the law, breaking important stories on the issue from Proposition 203's nail-biting election to the heavy-handed Gilbert police raid in June of a marijuana patient's home. We've collected all of our news coverage here in this special report, making it easy for you to kick back - with or without your medicine - and catch up on every important development since Prop 203 first collected enough signatures to make the ballot.
