    The Arizona Department of Health Services is aware of the recent Arizona Court of Appeals decision regarding hashish and the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act. This case arose from a criminal matter and does not directly affect the Department or direct the Department to make any changes to its rules. However, criminal law does take precedence over Department rules. The Department is reviewing this case with its legal counsel to determine whether any rule changes are necessary.

  2. Recently Added MMJ Law

    To clarify, I can continue to buy salvia, alcohol and opiods, but I am told I cannot access an extract? From a plant? I would like advice on how to best take care of my leg without CBD, since I am told by this redneck state it is not an option for me. Please call me at 610-291-1895

  8. Please publish the July 2017 dates for petition to add condition to medical marijuana

    I am unable to easily find the dates for July 2017 to petition to add a condition to list covered by medical marijuana. The statue states in January and July. The assumption would be anytime in July but your site indicates otherwise. If there is a date on your site it is not easily found. Please make this date prominent on your site.

    Thanks,

  10. Regarding today's Opioid Hysteria numbers (06/26/2017)

    Regarding today's Opioid Hysteria numbers (06/26/2017), I ask you:

    The article does not break these deaths and overdoses down. How many were heroin and other illegal drugs? How many were rx opioid deaths, but the medication was NOT rx'd to the abuser? How many were suicides by desperate pain patients, cut off from their legitimate medications and were forced to the street for relief? Without these break downs in the statistics, they are meaningless in terms of finding a solution or solutions to the problem.

    The opioid hysteria IS NOT CAUSED BY PRESCRIPTION OPIOID MEDICATION!!!! Your spreading of falsified propaganda…

    Thank you for your comments. As ADHS continues to receive reports of opioid overdoses and deaths, we will be able to provide more detailed information related to many of the areas you mention. We are also committed to promoting safe prescribing and use of opioids, which we know are important for certain medical conditions. Safe prescribing and use of opioids can improve patient safety, reduce harm, and prevent unintended consequences.

  11. I have a number of questions about the Governor's executive order for opioid reporting.

    Where is Ducey getting the funds to pay for this? Who is going to pay for the extra time and paperwork required of medical providers to comply with the order? What are they doing to ensure this doesn't violate a person's rights under HIPAA? Do providers have to report on NAS in infants and mothers on methadone who are already in treatment for opioid addiction? What's the plan when the order expires in 60 days? How will the information collected be used and by whom? Does the governor also plan to allocate money for more treatment facilities?
    I do not…

    Thank you for your question. Arizona Department of Health Services staff are diligently working to address the calls to action within Governor Ducey’s emergency declaration and are doing so under existing funding streams, including state funds and federal grant dollars. Opioid-related required reporting for healthcare providers falls in line with existing required reporting for communicable diseases, utilizing the same systems. These systems are HIPAA compliant. Reporting requirements are outlined on our website at www.azhealth.gov/opiod under the Reporting button. In order to better understand the burden of the opioid epidemic in Arizona and improve targeting of interventions, healthcare providers and others groups are required to report suspected opioid overdoses, suspected deaths due to opioids, and neonatal abstinence syndrome, regardless of the treatment status of the individual. Information collected from required reporting will be posted in aggregate on our website on a weekly basis beginning the week of June 26, 2017. Other…

  12. Many people have terrible back conditions (sometimes a major cause of weight gain) and what can we do when exercise seems impossible?

    A video series, maybe a little like the ones for older folks, that would teach exercises that can be done even with a chronic back condition and are at risk for diabetes.

    Food is not required to have an expiration date. The date on the packaging has more to do with product quality than food safety.

    Food products (regardless of whether they are expired or not) must be wholesome and unadulterated when offered for sale.

    Any concerns regarding products can be directed to the agency that permits and inspects the store, which in this case is Maricopa County Environmental Services.

    Complaints can be filed by visiting esd.maricopa.gov or calling 602-506-6616.

  15. Contact information requested

    I am looking for an answer to a general question and can't find the appropriate department. The question is: Is it a state law that a Human Hospital Laboratory cannot process a lab test on Canine blood (such as a progesterone test). If anyone can answer my question, or direct me to the appropriate department/statute, I would appreciate it! Thank you in advance.

  16. Maricopa County link not functional on Zika webpage

    The link for Maricopa County on your updated Zika website needs to be corrected; it links to an error page (http://www.maricopa.gov/public_health/). A suggestion would be to link to their Zika informational page: (http://www.maricopa.gov/1752/Healthcare-Provider-Information).

    I have a sister who has battled 9 years of valley fever-she has had a stroke and heart attack-she is in a study with NIH in Bethesda as a case they have never seen-why does Arizona cover up this deadly dust disease with no cure?
