RE: 'Express Rule Package'
This doesn’t appear to be such a ‘Transparent’ process. I would like to see additional changes to the Rules that don't have to be 'ordered by Judge' via a court decision for you AZDHS to implement them for everybody’s good. i.e.
R9-17-322.A.1. "For an application for a dispensary registration certificate, the physical address of the building or, if applicable, the physical address of the dispensary’s cultivation site is within 500 feet of a private school or a public school that existed before the date the dispensary submitted the initial dispensary registration certificate application"
Why not make 1120 foot ruling separating dispensaries for public parks and schools?
Let’s be helpful, not prejudice in your reactions to follow-through on responsibilities, that were supposed to be handled correctly the firs time.
We are working to be as transparent as possible. The rule you reference is actually part of the statute passed by voters. The 500-foot distance is cited in A.R.S. 36-2804: “within five hundred feet of a public or private school existing before the date of the nonprofit medical marijuana dispensary application.” As such it would take another voter initiative or 75% of the legislature voting to change it. Also per the statute, cities and counties may make other reasonable zoning requirements.A.R.S. 36-2806.1
