PHOENIX - A legal battle is brewing over so-called pot clubs that have popped up in the wake of Arizona's new medical marijuana law.
Both sides of the debate have asked for legal opinions on whether the clubs can and should be allowed to operate.
The 2811 Club located near 28th Avenue and Bell Road in Phoenix has already attracted 200 members.
Paul O'Connor joined the club because he says his chronic leg pain goes away after using medical marijuana.
"It took the pain completely from my legs," said O'Connor. "I'm having pain in my stomach, it took the pain from my stomach."
The 2811 Club is named after the Arizona state statute that allows card carrying patients to exchange medical marijuana amongst one another.
