UPDATE: Arizona Department of Health Services Licenses Arizona’s First Medical Marijuana Dispensary! Click here to learn more.
The first marijuana dispensary has finally been granted approval to open its doors in Glendale. There are also a few others that are ready for the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) to do their final inspections and give approval. So with a little luck, Arizona may have its first dispensaries open to patients before the end of the year! Most of the dispensary owners we have spoken with are waiting for the ruling on the White Mountain lawsuit before actually opening their doors. If you are unfamiliar with that lawsuit you can learn more here: White Mountain lawsuit here. Lawyers involved in the case expect a ruling to be made soon.
As soon as a dispensary opens, rest assured, we will let you know! Sign up for our marijuana newsletter and you will be notified as soon as it happens. You can also find a list of every marijuana dispensary in Arizona on Azmarijuana.com (that is, as soon as they open). So bookmark the page and cross your fingers. We just might get what we all want for Christmas/Hanukka/Kwanzaa this year!
