Judge tosses Gov. Brewer’s lawsuit!
Call the governor – tell her to drop
her lawsuit and simply follow the law!
District Judge Susan Bolton threw out Gov. Jan Brewer’s lawsuit challenging
the state’s voter-enacted medical marijuana law. Gov. Brewer filed suit while
refusing to implement a key part of the law that required the state to register
125 dispensaries. The ACLU and U.S. government argued for the dismissal.
Bolton’s decision was based largely on the fact that the state had
no plans to violate the federal Controlled Substances Act and that there was no
imminent threat that state workers would be federally prosecuted. Gov. Brewer
and her legal counsel may amend their complaint, but only if they address the problems.
They said they would study the dismissal before determining how to proceed.
lawsuit has been an unbelievable affront to the voters, a waste of taxpayer
money, and a direct impediment to sick people’s access to medicine they
desperately need, all coming from a governor obsessed with “standing up to the
feds” on illegal immigration and health care, but not on behalf of her own
seriously ill citizens.
Please call Gov. Brewer today and ask her to
stop challenging Arizona’s voter-enacted medical marijuana law
and to instead implement it. Seriously ill Arizonans can’t wait any longer.
