First Medical Marijuana Dispensary Opened Yesterday

It only took two years, but the first Medical Marijuana Dispensary  in Arizona is now open.  Arizona Organix located at 51st and Glendale opened its doors yesterday.   Additionally, in a major victory for the AMMA proponents, Judge Gordon recently issued a ruling, which in part, the Court ruled that the AMMA is not preempted by the Federal Controlled Substances Act.

However, and despite the electorate’s decision to pass the AMMA, it his highly likely that Bill Montgomery will appeal the Court’s decision stating that “The marijuana dispensary that opened in Glendale today does so in violation of federal law and, at best, under a cloud of uncertainty.”
