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.
