Arizona Sheriff Arpaio forms squad in response to medical marijuana law
PHOENIX (AP) — Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is forming a special squad to target people use Arizona's new medical marijuana law to violate other drug laws.
Arpaio says he wants to be prepared for criminals who believe the voter-approved law will give them cover to deal marijuana with impunity.
The measure will allow patients with cancer, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C and other chronic or debilitating diseases to buy 2 1/2 ounces of marijuana every two weeks or grow a limited number of plants themselves if they live 25 miles from a marijuana dispensary.
Patients could begin buying pot with a doctor's recommendation in the state this summer.
