    Are the marijuana laws different for minors than for adults in Arizona?

    Yes. As in every other state the laws vary if you are underage. Your first drug offense as a minor in Arizona however, you will be eligible for a short-term diversionary program known as “juvenile drug court.” This will eliminate the crime from your record upon successful completion. Be warned though, for repeat offenses even as a juvenile Arizona punishes harsher than most other states including hefty fines and confinement.

    Currently, in Arizona recreational marijuana is illegal for both minors and adults in Arizona. So the laws retaining to both minors and adults in that aspect are the same with the exception that adults can be disciplined much worse if they are caught in a marijuana situation with a minor. In the case of medical marijuana, the only difference is that minors require caregivers to apply for their medical marijuana cards.

    The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act, also known as AMMA, was created in 2010 and is designed to manage the marijuana industry within the state. To legally use marijuana in Arizona you must be a registered patient and have a registry identification card. A person may be a designated caregiver or dispenser agent if they are over 21.

    If the recreational marijuana law passes next week, don’t expect to be able to go to a shop unless you’re 21. They’ll be strict!!
