AZ Appeals Court Rules Hashish Not Medical Pot

Medical marijuana users in Arizona who prefer edibles to smoking may be out of luck following a ruling by the state Court of Appeals. In a divided decision,  the panel decided that the resin of the cannabis plant is legally not the same as the actual marijuana plant.  The ruling said the 2010 voter-approved law allows patients to only possess forms of the plant, not the resin or anything made from it.  The ruling upholds the conviction of a medical marijuana patient who was to two-and-a-half years in prison for having a small amount of hashish.  In effect, It also makes edibles, drinks and other forms of medical pot illegal.  The ruling could make it a felony to possess or sell everything from gummy bears to drinks and even oils that are used for sick children.
