PHOENIX (AP) -

A Maricopa County Superior Court judge has decided against clarifying the quantity of medical marijuana extracts that a patient can have under the state's medical marijuana law.

Judge Katherine Cooper ruled March 21 in a case involving a 5-year-old Mesa boy with debilitating seizures that the law allows qualifying patients to use marijuana extracts.

Prosecutors then asked Cooper to clarify whether the law's quantity limit of 2.5 ounces per two weeks applies to the amount of extract from 2.5 ounces of marijuana or to 2.5 liquid ounces of extract.

Prosecutors said police will need to know whether an amount of extract is legal.

However, Cooper says there's no dispute for her to rule on because the amount of extract used by the Mesa boy is legal under either interpretation.
