While there is no need to reinvent the wheel, there are certain areas of the law that will be different from other states, such requiring a patient to have had a relationship with their recommending physician – which could result in a backlog of patients seeing only the doctors that are willing to recommend it in the first place.
One patient suggested the law require marijuana not be withheld as a treatment option when discussing such matters. Another patient in Arizona wants to see those that are in jail for breaking a law that is no longer a punishable offense released.
There are several mandates that are being embraced by many of those who will be effected by the changes, and one of the most exciting for the patients is that idea that each location that dispenses would be required to have a director on site to help educate, be educated, and have a dialogue between the patients and the cultivators, lab techs (eventually),bakers, and other researchers.Read More
The Planning and Zoning Department will use a model ordinance from the League of Arizona Cities and Towns and a similar document from Pima County as a guide for formulating new regulations for Graham County.
The model ordinance from League of Arizona Cities and Towns includes the following:
• Add definitions to existing ordinances. These include definitions for medical marijuana, medical marijuana cultivation, medical marijuana dispensary, medical marijuana infusion and medical marijuana qualifying patients.
• Amend agricultural districts by adding language to allow medical marijuana cultivation as a permitted use, subject to conditions and limitations. These conditions and limitations include the names and locations of offsite medical marijuana dispensaries associated with the cultivation operation; a copy of operating procedures, and a survey showing the location of the nearest medical marijuana dispensary or cultivation site.
• Includes provisions to prohibit marijuana sales near residential properties or schools.Read More
