Bill To Test Medical Marijuana Would Cut Card Fees

An Arizona Senate subcommittee barely passed a measure that would require safety testing on the state's medical marijuana.  

Despite broad support among patients and the industry SB 1420 faces opposition because in exchange for mandatory testing it would lower the costs of patient cards from 150-dollars a year to 50-dollars for the application and 25-bucks a year for renewal.  

The three dissenting votes came from the Republicans who actually co-sponsored the legislation.  State Senator David Farnsworth admits when he signed on the measure he did not understand it would decrease fees.
