PHOENIX -- A lawsuit filed on behalf of a 5-year-old Mesa boy asked a court to rule that the state's medical marijuana law allows uses of marijuana extracts such as resins added to baked goods and creams.

The suit said Zander Welton experiences debilitating seizures but that his medical condition improved when he used marijuana extracts. However, his parents fear they'll be prosecuted.

The suit asked for a court to bar Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery and state health officials from taking action against the parents, dispensary operators or others who provide marijuana extracts for medical use.

Montgomery spokesman Jerry Cobb declined to comment Tuesday on the lawsuit filed Monday in Superior Court.

A Phoenix police document attached to the suit said Montgomery's office considers extracts illegal under Arizona criminal law.
