New Phoenix dispensaries face more limitations as to where they can operate. The new rules, which are stricter than before, were recently approved by the Phoenix City Council.
The regulations passed with a unanimous 8 – 0 vote, which included an emergency clause. This emergency clause puts the new regulations into effect immediately.
New marijuana businesses such as dispensaries and grow operations in Phoenix will now have to be further away from places of worship and residential areas, AZ Central reports. Also on the list are daycare centers, community youth centers and homeless shelters. These marijuana businesses must now be a minimum of one-quarter mile from any of the listed establishment types.
New Phoenix dispensaries may have difficulties finding real estate to open up shop on, but with some searching, locations can be found.
