Happening today, the city's first marijuana dispensary is scheduled to start distributing.
They opened their doors at the beginning of the month and have been pre-registering people for the last few weeks, and today Green Medicine will start dispensing marijuana.
Green Medicine is one of just two dispensaries in Arizona that have been given the go-ahead by the Arizona Department of Health Services. The other is in Glendale, called Arizona Organix; they opened their doors last week.
The opening of the Tucson facility will have a direct effect on thousands of medical marijuana cardholders in Southern Arizona.
The facility told Tucson News Now that it has been busy with clients since if officially opened its doors and they have been getting used to their equipment.
Green Medicine opens their doors at 10 a.m. today.
