Legal medical industry in Arizona
Interested in serving as the vital link between medical marijuana patients and proprietors? Permitted via certification from the Arizona Department of Health Services, caregivers are crucial because they provide medical marijuana to eligible patients who may be physically unable access their nearest dispensary because of the severity of their illness or proximity to their zone’s dispensary.
A CHAA zone, also known as a Community Health Analysis Area, is a type of geographic unit sectioned out by the Arizona Department of Health Services. It concerns candidates who apply for an Arizona Medical Marijuana license.
There are a total of 126 CHAA zones in the state, and candidates can apply to open a dispensary in either one of them if they stand up to all the necessary criteria.
CHAA zones represent a segment of the local population - areas encompassing between 10,000 – 100,000 residents. One medical marijuana license will be issued per CHAA zone, with the limit being a total of 124 dispensaries statewide.
The application process is divided appropriately. If there are several applications for the same zone one will be selected by the Department of Health Services, and in case there is only one qualifying application for a given CHAA zone it will be automatically approved.
It is important to note that at present, the department is suspending the dispensary application process all together due to a legal case involving Prop 203’s implementation.
