Phoenix New Times:  “As cannabis advocates debate whether a proposed Arizona legalization law allows counties or towns to ban home growing, attempts to regulate home cultivation of medical marijuana have failed.  The inability of counties to control home cultivation by qualified medical-marijuana patients gives insight into how the planned legalization measure may work for those who want to grow their own. . . . The rural counties of Apache and Gila approved ordinances in 2011 that also require patients to obtain a permit even when growing discreetly in their own homes. Yet, as officials confirm, no patient in either county ever applied for a permit.”
