PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona House has given preliminary approval to a bill that bars medical marijuana cardholders from possessing or using marijuana on school campuses.

If passed, the law would apply to preschools, colleges and universities. However, the restriction would not apply to private schools.

Arizona voters approved a medical marijuana law in 2010.

When this year's proposal goes before the full House for a formal vote, it must be affirmed by three-fourths of the members because it would change a voter-approved law.

House passage would send it to the Senate.
