Two years ago, people celebrated when the voters approved the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act and it looked like AZ would have its first marijuana in 2011. Then to the disappointment of many voters and patients, the State intentionally held up the process of licensing dispensaries. Now almost 2 years later, the dispensary certificates have been awarded and the number of open marijuana dispensaries in Arizona sadly remains at a ZERO. Now, as the marijuana industry battles the State in the courtroom, the future of marijuana dispensaries in Arizona may hang in the balance.
For a glimpse into when the dispensaries will open, check out Attorney Jeff Kaufman’s new editorial. He touches on when he thinks marijuana dispensaries will open in AZ and how the White Mountain Health Center lawsuit will effect the industry.
