Federal Law Trumps State & Local Marijuana Laws

Arizona–This amicus brief should send chills up the spines of every elected official (local, state and federal) in the country.

Judicial Watch filed an amicus brief in the White Mountain Health Center v. Maricopa County case.

Judicial Watch (a non-partisan educational organization that seeks to promote transparency, accountability and integrity in government and fidelity to the rule of law) takes the same position taken by Arizona Attorney General, Tom Horne, and Maricopa County Attorney, Bill Montgomery, that our “medical” marijuana law conflicts with federal law and thus is preempted by the Supremacy Clause. According to Judicial Watch, passing laws that flout federal law “undermines the very system of laws that protect our liberty.”
