Sun City’s dispensaries provide natural relief to seniors with medicinal cannabis cards. Browse our local listings, and read more to learn about getting medicine in Arizona.
Some patients want to grow their cannabis instead of buying it. But, Arizona has very specific qualifications for home cultivation. Only cardholders who live more than 25 miles away from the nearest dispensary can get permission to grow.
As someone living in Sun City or the Phoenix Metro Area, you have a very low chance of meeting this requirement. If you can’t travel to a dispensary by yourself, you may want to appoint a caregiver to do it for you.
Arizona allows medical marijuana sales only, so you must register with the state to shop at a dispensary. To get a medicinal cannabis card, you have to have Arizona residency. So, patients with residency in another state who live in Sun City temporarily can’t sign up. If you have a medical marijuana card from your home state, you can possess cannabis medicine, but you can’t buy it.
You have no need to worry about the legitimacy of the medicine you purchase from an Arizona dispensary. All the medicine they sell must come from their facilities or from another registered dispensary. Dispensaries that make edibles must have food establishment authorization before selling them.
