The Arizona Medical Marijuana Policy Project (AMMPP) is a grassroots organization devoted to passing Proposition 203, the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act. Currently, seriously ill people who use marijuana on the advice of their doctor to treat illnesses such as cancer, AIDS, and multiple sclerosis are subject to arrest and imprisonment, simply for trying to stimulate their appetite or alleviate their pain.
PHOENIX (AP) By a narrow margin, Arizona voters have approved medical marijuana for people with chronic or debilitating diseases.
The decision makes Arizona the 15th state to have approved a medical marijuana law. California was the first in 1996, and 13 other states and the District of Columbia followed.
