Want To Open A Medical Marijuana Dispensary In Arizona?


MDS says its MedBox machines are the most secure and transparent method to assure patient verification and compliance

‚ÄčWant to run a medical marijuana dispensary in the Grand Canyon State? A California-based firm is consulting with companies, groups and individuals on the steps necessary to successfully complete their applications to establish medical marijuana dispensaries in Arizona.

To date, Medicine Dispensing Systems, Inc. (MDS), a subsidiary of Medbox, Inc., says it has been hired to consult for more than 60 individuals and small groups vying for approval of dispensary certification applications in Arizona, which are limited to a total of 124 approvals statewide.
Arizona votes approved Ballot Proposition 203 in 2010. Prop 203 allows registered qualifying patients who have a physician’s written certification that they have been diagnosed with a debilitating condition that would likely receive benefit from marijuana, to obtain the product from a registered nonprofit dispensary, and to possess and use medical marijuana to treat the condition.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer recently dropped her lawsuit which had put the application process on temporary hold, and now the Arizona Department of Health Services expects to begin accepting dispensary applications as soon as April.

MDS says it is a leading consultant and provider of technology-based solutions to the medical marijuana industry, and has experience in every state where the product is now legal. The company says it is “uniquely qualified” to assist in the application process, offering comprehensive services including special zoning permits, lease negotiations, marketing, and specialized clinic equipment.
The company also provides their patented Medicine Dispensing Machines to clinics. According to MDS, their machines are the most secure and transparent method to assure patient verification and compliance with all state and local regulations.
MDS says the system is already in use by various dispensaries nationwide, and that it “provides assurance to state and local law enforcement that clinics are being operated legitimately, legally, and in accordance with all statutory regulations.”
