Many "Patients" are being treated like lower class citizens, by dispensary Staff. We are not Customers/Clients/ Consumers we are Medical Patients. Staff needs to have training in "Patient" Compassionate Care. NOT JUST Card Carriers who smoke marijuana. All the information you have is only about opening a BIG MONEY MAKING Business to grow and dispense marijuana.. STOP the Cheech & Chong Atmosphere Patients HAVE RIGHTS please address them for the public & as a reference for Patients and Dispensaries alike. Many of us are being ABUSED and mistreated.2 votes

The voters decided the first issues for which marijuana was approved. Two times a year, the Department accepts petitions to add new conditions based on scientific research. You can find out more about that process at azhealth.gov/medicalmarijuana
I've spent thousands of dollars buying sometimes low quality medical marijuana from state licensed dispensaries for the past 6 months. I can't afford to do it any longer. During this past 6 months, I've met countless other patients that are legally allowed to grow their own medicine. This creates 2 classes of people that choose to use medical cannabis. The rule is beyond unfair... It's down right un-American.1 vote
The law passed by voters designated the 25-mile rule. ADHS does not have any way to change the requirements.

Cardholders from other states cannot purchase medical marijuana from an Arizona dispensary. In order to purchase from an Arizona dispensary, you will need to apply for an Arizona Medical Marijuana Qualifying Patient card. Please read through the patient application instructions and checklist on our website: http://www.azdhs.gov/medicalmarijuana/patients/adult.htm This is also where you can access the link to apply for a patient card.

Perhaps there is another page or document that you are referencing? You may increase the font on this page or any page of our website by using the browser zoom controls. Thank you.

I CANNOT FIND A LIST OF DISPENSARIES ON YOUR WEBSITE ALL I GET IS PAGES OF APPLICATION PROCEDURES. I CLICK ON DISPENSARIES AND GET EVERYTHING BUT A LIST! HELP1 vote
The law does not allow us to provide any information about dispensaries to the general public – therefore, we cannot post a list online. If you are a registered cardholder, you will be eamiled a list regularly as well as through the mail. Please make sure that your email and mailing address are correct. If you need help more quickly or need to correct your email address, please email the cardholder program at firstname.lastname@example.org
A caregiver can only hold that status at the request of a qualifying patient. You can revoke the caregiver’s status if they are not caring for you as you intended. Contact email@example.com to make that change or use the online function.
Unfortunately my health has gotten worse and I had to move in with family in TExas. Is there any hope of TExas approving the medicinal marijuana law? I actually have gotten worse now that I can't use marijuana to help my fibromayagia and my chronic IBS .1 vote
The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act was passed by the voters. ADHS was not part of the initiative. We hope you find relief for your symptoms.

Question: is an infusion kitchen that provides only to a dispensary required to have a dispensary license when you are not selling to the general public?1 vote
Before preparing, selling, or dispensing marijuana-infused edible food products (edibles), a nonprofit medical marijuana dispensary must obtain written authorization from the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) to prepare, sell, or dispense edibles.
Yes, it must be licensed as part of the dispensary.
You need to fix your qualifying patient renewal form. Have tried several times to upload the physician certification and it doesn't work.
How are patients suppose to complete the renewal process when the online forms do not work correctly. I have tried several times / different days to upoad the physician's certification form, and it will not work. Please advise if there is another way to submit the form with required documents. Thanks.1 vote
If you are having problems with the online renewal system, please contact us with the web chat function between 8 and 5 Monday through Friday.
I believe the cost of $300 is too much.10 votes
this was such an easy application process. i couldn't talk enough about how streamlined and modern and simple and intuitive the applic for my medical marijuana card was.
that is over. the government has stuck their nose into something that works and perverted it into something that is a chore, especially for those of us that are sick and can't run all over town to jump through your hoops. you are actually trying to prevent me from getting my medicine. shame on you.4 votes
