Phoenix New Times:  “A new lawsuit over Arizona’s Medical Marijuana Act targets the provision that bans patients and caregivers from growing pot within 25 miles of an open dispensary.  Bill Hayes, a marijuana activist and qualified patient who lives in Surprise, argues in a federal complaint filed yesterday that the provision violates the equal protection clause of the state constitution. . . . Hayes, who was a volunteer for the Arizona Compassion Club when we met him back in June, now runs the Arizona Cannabis Society, . . . In the other lawsuit we mentioned, philanthropist Gerald Gaines wants the court to throw out a DHS rule — the one that requires a licensed physician to be a medical director.”
