Arizona Judge Rules That Arizona Medical Marijuana Law is Constitutional

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medbox, Inc. (OTC Markets: MDBX) (www.medboxinc.com), responded to a landmark ruling issued by an Arizona state court yesterday that sent positive reinforcement throughout the medical marijuana industry in Arizona and the nation.
