Potential delays for medical marijuana in AZ continues as Arizona reviews the recently released federal memo concenrning medical marijuana dispensaries and growers.

PHOENIX (AP) — As Arizona officials review a new federal memo on medical marijuana, a lawyer for would-be dispensary operators say the memo doesn't really change anything.

The Department of Justice memo warns that commercial dispensaries and growers would still be violating federal drug laws regardless of state law.

Attorney Ryan Hurley says that stance is consistent both with a 2009 department memo and recent letters from U.S. attorneys.
Hurley says it means his clients — prospective dispensary operators — remain at risk of federal prosecution. But he says patients and individual caregivers apparently still won't be prosecution targets.
Arizona has filed a federal lawsuit asking a judge to rule on whether Arizona can implement its medical marijuana law despite the apparent conflict with federal law.
