Arizona on Tuesday got 16 new laws, as Gov. Doug Ducey signed 16 bills covering marijuana use while pregnant, the purchase of alcohol with an out-of-state license, sex-offender registrations and service animals, among other things.
Most of the laws do not go into effect until 90 days after the legislative session ends, which could be later this month.
Buying booze: House Bill 2031 overturns a 2014 law that made it illegal for customers over age 21 to buy alcohol using an out-of-state driver's license issued to them when they were under age 21, even if it wasn't yet expired. These licenses are usually vertical instead of horizontal to highlight that the individual could be underage. This bill included an emergency clause allowing it to go into effect immediately.
Pregnancy and marijuana: HB 2061 requires the Department of Health Services to set rules requiring all medical-marijuana dispensaries to prominently display signs warning pregnant and breast-feeding women of the dangers marijuana poses.The signs must include language about the risk of being reported to the state Department of Child Safety for marijuana use.
