Arizona's medical marijuana law is constitutional and federal drug laws don't stand in the way of public officials implementing the state law, a judge ruled Tuesday.

"This court will not rule that Arizona, having sided with the ever-growing minority of states and having limited it to medical use, has violated public policy," Judge Michael Gordon of Maricopa County Superior Court wrote.
