Despite the fact that Arizona is still trying to work on getting its 2010 voter approved medical marijuana program up and off the ground, the state today claimed that they are already looking into expanding its long smoldering medical marijuana program, despite the reluctance of Gov. Jan Brewer and her attorney general, state officials are still moving forward in an attempt to fully comply with the implementation of Arizona’s medical marijuana law, approved by voters two years ago.

Arizona’s DHS (Department of Health Services) claims to still be interested in considering the addition of potential ailments under which Arizona patients may be allowed to consume medical marijuana. Currently Arizona’s would be medical marijuana patients have a few glaring omissions on their list of potential ailments which are mentioned in the 2010 law. Those excluded ailments are post-traumatic stress disorder, migraines, depression and general anxiety disorder. While the normal, more vile ailments are already covered cancer, glaucoma, AIDS, chronic pain, muscle spasms and hepatitis C.

The ADHS holds public hearings on these modification requests on Fridays at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. They are located at 250 N. 17th Ave. in downtown Phoenix. Should you chose to make comment, the ADHS is requesting that you fill out a simple survey. This Friday is also the deadline to submit applications to operate dispensaries to sell medical marijuana to users. Up to 126 pot dispensaries will be permitted statewide, but only one per designated area.
