Open a Dispensary in Arizona
Are you considering an Arizona dispensary license as your next business investment?
Although many states are now embracing medical cannabis, Arizona has enormous potential for this amazing product. In March 2016, the state had nearly 90,000 patients, a number that rose to more than 114,000 by the end of February 2017.
More people are learning about the potential benefits, talking openly with a doctor about the issue and – perhaps most notably – the development of more ing qualifying conditions that allow them greater to access this treatment. Most of these conditions involve chronic pain.
A wide variety of conditions define available care under Arizona medical cannabis laws. The majority of these become more likely with advanced age, and Arizona’s population is getting older. In July 2016, 16.9 percent of the population was aged 65 or older.
Cannabis Licensing and Planning
Like most states, Arizona has strict rules in place about founding establishing and operating dispensaries. A dispensary is a special class of nonprofit empowered to cultivate controlled products for the use of qualifying patients. Arizona does not, at this time, permit recreational cannabis consumption.
The Arizona Department of Health Services last certified new dispensary licenses in July 2016. As time goes on, however, the state will continue to certify more as needed to meet the growing needs demands of its patient population – likely on an annual basis around the same time period.
Many observers consider it highly likely that Arizona will be among the next states to legalize recreational marijuana. If this happens, the state will need to specify the parameters of other types of cultivation, distribution and retail businesses operating within the state.
The time to act on this unique opportunity is right away.
Organizations planning to meet the requirements to open a dispensary are held to strict standards. They must demonstrate not only that they have the capital and processes needed to meet operating requirements, but that they are capable of strictly adhering to tight state regulations.
It will be difficult, if not impossible, for enterprises to reach all qualifications alone.
