WHEN MAY A PARENT WITH CUSTODY MOVE FROM ARIZONA WITH A CHILD?
Generally, parents may agree between themselves about custody of parenting time; however, if the parents cannot agree and if the Arizona Legal system becomes involved (for example, when a parent asks the court for divorce), only the Superior Court may decided these issues. If both parents live in Arizona, the parent with physical custody desiring to move with the child must give 60 days’ notice to the other parent before the child may be moved more than 100 miles from the other parent or from the state. The 60-day period gives sufficient time to the non-moving parent to request a hearing to stop the move.
WHAT IF MY JOB REQUIRES AN IMMEDIATE TRANSFER IN LESS THAN 60 DAYS?
A parent who is required to relocate in less than 60 days must be a parent with joint physical custody and have the agreement of either parents or a court order allowing the move of the child. If agreement cannot be reached in the situation of required relocation in less than 60 days, the moving parent must file a request with the court.
SHOULD MEDICAL MARIJUANA BE AN OPTION?
“In 1972, the US Congress placed marijuana in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act because they considered it to have “no accepted medical use.” Since then, 23 of 50 US states and DC have legalized the medical use of marijuana. Proponents of medical marijuana argue that it can be a safe and effective treatment for the symptoms of cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, pain, glaucoma, epilepsy, and other conditions. They cite dozens of peer-reviewed studies, prominent medical organizations, major government reports, and the use of marijuana as medicine throughout world history. Opponents of medical marijuana argue that it is too dangerous to use, lacks FDA-approval, and that various legal drugs make marijuana use unnecessary. They say marijuana is addictive, leads to harder drug use, interferes with fertility, impairs driving ability, and injures the lungs, immune system, and brain. They say that medical marijuana is a front for drug legalization and recreational use.

In November 2010, voters passed the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act. The citizen initiative (Proposition 203) called on the Arizona Department of Health Services to create a medical marijuana program within 120 days from the official election results. Qualifying patients began applying for identification cards on April 14, 2011, and it is our goal to begin accepting dispensary applications as soon as this April. All information will be made available on this website as soon as it is ready. You can also find historical documents from the development of the program.
