Arizona Medical Marijuana Rules
The rules that apply to the Medical Marijuana Dispensary portion of the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act were filed on April 11, 2012. ADHS will accept applications for Medical Marijuana Dispensary Registration Certificates from May 14 through May 25.
ADHS used an express rulemaking process to incorporate the changes required by a recent Superior Court Ruling. An unofficial draft of the rules combines the amendments contained in the Express Rulemaking with the Medical Marijuana Program Rules.
