The City of Scottsdale allows businesses to provide drive-thrus for pharmacies, alcohol, and tobacco… but not for cannabis — yet.
A drive-thru proposed by Harvest of Scottsdale dispensary went up in smoke at a city Planning and Zoning Commission meeting where it received a split decision vote — just one vote shy of approval. However, the Scottsdale Police Department was fine with the proposal and no comments from the public were against it, Yahoo reported.
“Drive-thru capabilities are allowed by state law,” Harvest stated.
Harvest is tentatively on the city’s October agenda to try and get approval for the drive-thru.
Phoenix, Tempe, Tucson and Surprise are among cities in Arizona that are permitted to have drive-thru marijuana sales. The Mint dispensary in Tempe has a drive-thru window and so does the state’s largest dispensary, D2 Dispensary in Tucson.
