It is legal for a patient with an Arizona registry ID card to use
cannabis for medical purposes. Patients may also grow cannabis and
appoint a designated caregiver for assistance. Patients and designated caregivers may only cultivate if they live at least 25 miles from a registered dispensary; until further notice, however, the dispensary program is in limbo, therefore all patients with registry ID cards are able to cultivate their own medicine, as long as they receive permission to cultivate.
A patient may have up to twelve plants and two and one-half ounces of
usable marijuana. Patients must have received permission to cultivate in order to grow their own medicine, and can only grow cannabis in an "enclosed" space, whether it is indoors or outdoors.
