Arizona Senator David Gowan (R) has discreetly slipped an anti-marijuana bill into the Legislature.
Senate Bill 1156 is a “striker” bill, which means it was a bill that got approval and then a lawmaker(s) changed most or all of the language to anything absolutely diverse in order sneak it by way of the legislative procedure devoid of the public noticing. In this case, Senator Gowan turned SB1156 from a water protection bill into a bill about regulating marijuana sector publishers.
“SB1156 is attempting to make publishing particular marijuana-connected content material illegal in Arizona, and absolutely disregards the truth that the Initially Amendment in the Constitution of the United States permits publishers the proper to freely publish the content material they deem worthy,” stated AZmarijuana.com. “Under SB1156, internet sites and magazines that list Arizona health-related marijuana dispensaries would be deemed guilty of a Class six felony for each and every listing that does not give the dispensary’s registration certificate quantity.”
Legally-operating health-related marijuana delivery solutions would also be impacted by SB1156.
SB1156 states, “A listing or menu service that does not show a nonprofit health-related marijuana dispensary’s registration certificate identification quantity issued pursuant to section 36-2804 with the nonprofit health-related marijuana dispensary’s or health-related marijuana delivery service’s solution lines is guilty of a Class six felony.”
