Arizonan hit new records with its medical marijuana program last year. Arizonans who hold medical-marijuana cards bought 1.3 million ounces of marijuana in 2017 — or, about 86,637 pounds, according to a new report by the state Department of Health Services, which oversees the state's program. That's up nearly 50 percent from sales in 2016. Of that, marijuana edibles — such as candies and food — represented about 3,718 pounds.
Facing re-election, Gov. Doug Ducey used his most important moment of the year to appeal for unity. This week, in his final State of the State address before asking voters to return him to the executive office, the Republican governor was not the big-talking candidate of three years ago. He did not take on hot-button social issues or unveil a signature policy issue, other than education funding — one he has long discussed.
During his State of the State address Monday, Gov. Doug Ducey highlighted a business sued by the U.S. Department of Labor for being a "chronic offender" of wage violations. In a passage spotlighting a man who was released from prison, turned his life around and now trains inmates to become electricians, the governor saluted Toby Thomas, the president of Austin Electric, a private-sector partner in "giving people a fresh start and a real second chance."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
