One thing that folks have mentioned on my blog over and over is concern about who will need to submit fingerprints as part of their application under the AZ Medical Marijuana Act. Here’s the short answer: All applicants except a qualifying patient will need to submit a full set of fingerprints before getting a card or license. So the majority of people who want to use medical marijuana will not need to send in fingerprints to the Department. Everyone else (caregivers, dispensary owners and those who work in dispensaries) will need to send in fingerprints. The initiative also says clearly that ADHS can, at its discretion, run a background check on anyone who submits those fingerprints and, if need be, deny the application based on the results.
