Arizona’s Medical Marijuana Industry Moves Forward

In the weeks since the passage of Arizona’s Proposition 203, which made the state the 15th state in the nation with legalized medicinal marijuana, there has been a flurry of interest in the new industry and lots of media coverage.

The Marijuana Policy Project, which helped to push and fund the initiative, reports a flood of phone calls from people interested in setting up a business catering to the medical marijuana community, according to the StopTheDrugWar.org.

This Phoenix New Times story explains the billion dollar industry budding in the state.

The East Valley Tribune and The Arizona Republic examined the challenges employers face and questions they have about drug testing in the workplace in the wake of the new law.

AZCapitolTimes.com reports that visiting medical marijuana patients from other states could face problems with law enforcement when bringing pot into Arizona.

And in Flagstaff, City Council members sent staff back to the drawing board to come up with less restrictive zoning for medical marijuana businesses noting that strip clubs faced less restrictive zoning in the initial plan.

    I’m very pleased to see that Arizona has passed Prop 203, I think it’ll add a needed boost to the economy and it’s just a matter of time before the other 30 states fall into line. Thanks for the great info!
