Almost two years after election results that protected safe access for patients, Arizona will be opening it’s first medical marijuana center, Compassion First Caregivers, in Phoenix later on this month.
The model is very different from distribution programs in other states like California, Washington, and Colorado. The center will serve as both a production center for 50 caregivers and a distribution center for hundreds of patients. Cultivation experts will be on hand to give caregivers a hand with their tent if anything comes up.
Advocates are glad the state is allowing things to finally get going after legal challenges against the law, Kendrick Speagle from Compassion First Caregivers said,
“We’ve finally reached the point where patients can get the help they so badly need…People with legitimate, verifiable medical conditions should be able to exercise their decisional autonomy in choosing the medication that is best for them”
These centers are a big deal, because if you live within 25 miles of one you will not be able to grow any of your own medicine.
Also Compassion First Caregivers seem to be one of the largest state authorized grows I’ve ever heard of. If the 50 caregivers each have a tent, that is 50 lights. While other big grows have come and gone with the changing political winds, the amount of organization and rigid structure of Arizona’s law should keep the feds worried about the real drug issues of the Southwest.
