Tempe is home to only three dispensaries, but residents hope that changes soon.
The Tempe City Council just held a hearing about whether they should add more medical marijuana dispensaries, Fox 10 reports. Residents and medical marijuana patients showed their approval of the idea.
One Tempe residents told the Tempe City Council, “The more, honestly, the better, because it gives people who don’t want to have all of the side effects of a prescription medication and want something that can leave their system quickly and not have that next day hangover from like a muscle relaxer or a pain killer.”
Another resident commented, “I’d love to have a little more choice in the east valley without having to go to west valley where there’s a lot more, so I think Tempe could definitely benefit from more dispensaries.”
