In a major legal setback to the state's medical-marijuana community, the Arizona Court of Appeals has ruled that cannabis extracts commonly sold in state dispensaries are illegal.
Read the full court ruling below.
The ruling affects what the court and Arizona law calls "hashish," or the resin extracted from marijuana. Medical marijuana consumers also know it as hash oil, shatter, wax, and other names. It's become one of the biggest sellers at the state's dispensaries, used to fill vape cartridges and create most cannabis-infused food and drinks.
It's also the main ingredient in the cannabis oil used by many parents to treat epileptic children.
The appeals court found in a 2-1 decision that the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act doesn't address hashish.
