The AZ Medical Marijuana Act states that cities and towns may adopt “reasonable regulations” regarding the location and operations of medical marijuana dispensaries and growing operations in their jurisdictions. The ADHS still has the responsibility to issue the dispensary license- but any license that we ultimately issue would be contingent on the prospective facility being in compliance with local zoning requirements. To help, the League of Arizona Cities and Towns has put together a model ordinance to help cities and towns get their arms around the zoning issue. The League has also posted examples of ordinances that have been passed by other cities and towns like Globe, Marana, Oro Valley and Tucson.
