State of Arizona v. Jones: Breaking Down the Case for Extracts

111 E Taylor St, Phoenix, AZ 85004

Join the Arizona Cannabis Bar Assoication, ACLU of Arizona, Representatives of the Jones appellate team, and legal experts as we discuss the Jones Case and what it means for the use of extracts under the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act.

The case, State v. Rodney Jones, stems from a 2013 arrest in Yavapai County. Rodney Jones, a medical marijuana cardholder, was charged with a crime for possessing hashish. An appeals court later ruled that medical marijuana only applies to the dried leaves and flowers of the marijuana plant, not extracted resin and oils from the plant, such as hash. Those extracts are in marijuana edibles and other products used by patients who chose to, or can’t, smoke marijuana.

Free Webinar: Preventing Communicable Disease Through Vaccination Laws

Vaccines can be critical in creating an equitable health environment for children and young adults in the prevention of vaccine-preventable diseases. However, declining vaccination rates in the U.S. along with outbreaks of once well-controlled diseases like measles and mumps, are cause for concern.

In this webinar, the presenters will discuss the use of vaccine mandates to reduce and prevent communicable disease, focusing on:

  • An examination of vaccination mandates and exemptions for institutions of higher learning;

  • A review of the Disneyland outbreak in late 2014 as the impetus for California’s SB 277, the resulting legal challenges, and a snapshot of where the state is now in regards to the bill’s implementation;

  • A local public health practitioner’s reaction to communicable disease outbreaks within a community and federal detention facility, including the coordination and challenges that arise during such response.
