Legal medical industry in Arizona
Arizona Hemp Center's Medical Marijuana Blog is a continually updated resource of news and information regarding proposition 203 in Arizona and medical marijuana use across the country. Our goal is to help promote the drug as a viable method of treatment for certain illnesses, and also share best practices for consumption on medical marijuana.
The first medical marijuana dispensary in Arizona could open as soon as this weekend.
Officials from the Arizona Department of Health Services are expected to inspect Arizona Organix in Glendale Thursday morning.
They could be there for several hours, completing a nine page checklist that includes inspections of security, structuring, inventory control, patient records, and sanitation. If they don't pass, they can't open.
"We've got them pretty tightly regulated, both in terms of their operation, and in terms of how they interact with patients," said DHS Director Will Humble.
Currently, licensed medical marijuana patients can only get medication from caregivers, who grow it for them.
Dispensaries are similar, in sorts, to conventional pharmacies.
