Arizona legalized cannabis for medical use in 2010 and for recreational use in 2020. It is legal for Arizona medical marijuana patients and anyone 21 or older to buy cannabis products from Arizona dispensaries.
Mint Cannabis will celebrate the official opening of its fourth Arizona dispensary, located near the I-17 and Northern Ave. in Phoenix (2444 W. Northern Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85021) by giving back to local Veterans.
This Friday, Nov. 11, the Mint will donate $1 from each pre-roll sold at its newest dispensary to Friends of Freedom, a Phoenix-based nonprofit that helps members of the military and Veterans locally by assisting them with rent, utilities, car repairs, military transition (employment search, building resumes, and purchase of job-required equipment to include suits), and even donated cars.
“Since our inception in 2016, we have been on a smart, steady growth trajectory in Arizona,” said Eivan Shahara, Co-Founder and CEO of Mint Cannabis. “We plan to continue to grow and expand our brand. We hope to broaden our footprint by opening additional dispensaries in the state during the next few years.”
In addition, all four Mint dispensary locations in Arizona (two in Phoenix, one in Guadalupe/Tempe, and one in Mesa) will double their year-round Veteran discount (which is typically 22%) to 44% on Friday, Nov. 11. The cannabis operator will also offer free tacos in the parking lot of its newest location, from noon to 8 p.m.
The Mint’s newest dispensary location in Phoenix will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. In addition to donating $1 from each pre-roll sold at its new dispensary location to Friends of Freedom on Veterans Day, and offering a 44% discount to Veterans on Nov. 11, 2022, the dispensary will offer a buy-one-get-one deal on any one item in the store during the entire month of November 2022.
