Arizona cities including Phoenix AZ, and Tempe, AZ have already begun passing their ordinances for Dispensary Zoning to regulate the requirements involving medical marijuana dispensaries.
These efforts are being made in compliance with the new Arizona Medical Marijuana Law. According to the law, in order to become a legal and licensed dispensary, the grower or infuser (injection into food) of medical marijuana, the dispensary applicant must comply with the zoning standards of the particular city municipality, or town for which the dispensary will be located.
The ADHS is expected to begin accepting ADHS applications for dispensary licenses next April 2011.
