It’s official – the first medical marijuana dispensary in Arizona has received it’s license. Arizona Organix at 5301 West Glendale Avenue in Glendale, Arizona passed an inspection by the Department of Health Services yesterday.
“It’s good that they’re so thorough. It gets the right people in the business, and keeps the wrong people out,” said Ben Myer, Director of Arizona Organix according to AZFamily.Com.
But before people start driving to Glendale Avenue in packs and droves, realize that just because the dispensary has their license doesn’t mean they are reading to start dispensing medicine. “Ryan Wells, the director of Arizona Organix, says he and two other owners of the business are still trying to figure out when to begin retail operations.” According to the Phoenix New Times. The article went on to say, “Arizona Organix has found it difficult to nail down an off-site location due to the fears of landlords and the threat of federal action, Wells says, but the company is close to signing a deal to rent space for the growing facility.”
The next dispensary location to be inspected will be in Tucson (on Tuesday).
