Legal Alert: Arizona Supreme Court Mandates Medical Marijuana License in Every County, Affirms Importance of Patient Access
Last Thursday, the Arizona Supreme Court in Saguaro Healing LLC v. State of Arizona held that the Arizona Department of Health Services (“AZDHS”) must issue at least one medical marijuana dispensary certificate in each county, in accordance with the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (“AMMA”).
The Court’s opinion interpreted the AMMA’s language to require a minimum, not a maximum, number of medical marijuana dispensaries within the state and in each county. In doing so, the Court furthered one of the AMMA’s intended purposes—to ensure that patients throughout Arizona have access to a medical marijuana dispensary.
