New MMJ Collective Offers Meds

Posted By on Mon, Feb 27, 2012 at 9:07 AM

Medical marijuana patients will have a new place to get meds starting Monday.

The Green Halo Caregiver Collective is the brainchild of Ken Sobel, who has practiced law in Arizona and California since 1980. The collective will offer patients a variety of meds from a group of local patients and caregivers. The city approved the building at 3359 N. Freeway, which is near Prince and Interstate 10, for a dispensary. But until Sobel can open a dispensary — the state has said it will accept applications in April — he is opting to get patients connected with MMJ via each other.

For a one-time $20 membership fee, new patients can choose 2 grams of a variety of MMJ strains. After that, Green halo will take suggested donations for various strains.

Sobel is not a carpet-bagger, swooping in to try to soak cash out of Arizona's medical marijuana infancy. He has southern Arizona roots - he graduated from UA and was ASUA president when he was there, he owns property here and splits time between Californian and Tucson. His planned dispensaries and the collective are non-profit.

Mr. Smith approves.
