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

ASU Beus Center for Law and Society | Room 150 | Webcast Available

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.

Vaccines can be critical in creating an equitable health environment for children and young adults in the prevention of vaccine-preventable diseases.

  • 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.

Reducing Smoke Risks from Wildfires

EPA Webinar for APHA State Affiliates

December 3, 2018, 2:00 - 3:30 pm

To join the webinar: http://ampublichealthassoc.adobeconnect.com/affiliates54/

With wildfires increasing in size, severity, and duration, communities are having to learn to live with unhealthy levels of smoke. Scientists at EPA have been working to address the challenges public health officials face in making decisions whether to close local schools, open clean air shelters, restrict outdoor activities, recommend that residents stay indoors, and how to advise on the use of facemasks or indoor air purifiers. Smoke from fires can affect everyone, and those with existing respiratory and cardiovascular illness may be more severely impacted.
