Montgomery To Seek Appellate Court Stay of Lower Court Ruling on the AMMA

According to the Arizona Republic, Maricopa County Attorney is filing an appeal of the Superior Court’s finding that the AMMA is not preempted by the Federal Controlled Substance Act.  Montgomery’s argument is, in part, “I’m going to be violating part of my oath in giving advice to Maricopa County to pursue a course of conduct that I know is going to lead to activity in violation of federal law.”

Meanwhile, a second dispensary is set to open in Tucson and ADHS as licensed a third dispensary to open in Cochise County.
