Legal medical industry in Arizona
Arizona is among 15 states that have laws permitting eligible patients to consume medicinal marijuana for the treatment of approved conditions and terminal illnesses. Eligibility for a marijuana recommendation depends upon both type and severity of an illness, and all patients must first speak with a physician to determine if medical marijuana is the right treatment for them.
If you currently suffer from any of the 12 conditions designated by the Arizona Department of Health Service, your first step is to speak with your general physical to get referred to an appropriate medical practitioner who can legally provide you with a certification to receive medical marijuana.
Once you obtain your card, you have two options when it comes to acquiring medical marijuana you can:
For patients under the age of 18, a custodial parent or legal guardian must first be designated as his or her caregiver. This requires the summation of the written certification above, a Patient Under 18 Online Application and a Custodial Parent and Legal Guardian Attestation Form, as well as other supporting documentation that is specific to the applicant. All of these forms are available online at the Arizona Department of Health Services’ website.
Because Proposition 203 is not officially in effect, prices for Medical Marijuana in Arizona have yet to be determined, but looking at prices in other states where Medical Marijuana is legal gives a good indication of what the costs will be here. Additionally, it is unlikely that your health insurance provider will cover the cost of Medical Marijuana.
