Tucson could be home of second AZ medical marijuana dispensary

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A medical marijuana dispensary on the southeast side of Tucson could open next week if it passes state inspection. 

The dispensary is called ‘Green Halo'.

Located on south Wilmot near I-10 and it is in the final few steps of a two year process, the last piece is getting approval to open from the state.  It will not be the first though to do so in Arizona. 

Yesterday, a Glendale medical marijuana dispensary was given the OK.  State officials checked security, inventory control, medical credentials and everything passed.

Now State Health officials will stop giving new grow cards or renewing grow cards anywhere within 25 miles of the Glendale dispensary. 

The thinking is that growers will stop growing and have to start buying from regulated dispensaries. 

Next week the same changes could go into effect in Tucson if ‘Green Halo' passes. 

Tucson News Now will be posting updates on this story as they come along.
