Straight to the Source for MMJ Info

Posted By on Fri, May 25, 2012 at 12:00 PM

The state of Arizona has some pretty cool shit on their website, where medical marijuana is concerned. They do a pretty good job of updating it, so it's a pretty good place to go for MMJ info. To wit:

Dispensary Operator Application Reports—If you go here, you get the latest numbers on where (and how many) people are applying to open dispensaries. It's a list, so it's a bit cumbersome. As of Friday morning, 25 applications were in for Tucson area dispensaries, with Marana, part of the northwest side and the far west side unrepresented. At least three people applied in three different Community HealthAnalysis Areas—central, east and southwest. Today is the last day for potential dispensary operators to get their paperwork in for administrative checks and rechecks and official stamps and approvals. They could open soon after Aug. 7.

Map Your Dispensary Location—This server-based game allows you to click and type to find your dispensary location. Loads of fun, but the in-game graphics and cut scenes suck, um, mostly because it's not a real game. It's a Department of Health Services data map. But it's game-like. And fun.

Patient reports—And of course you can go here for the latest patient reports. This one tells you how many people in your neighborhood have applied for MMJ cards. Not literally. Its by CHAA.

The Rules - This link takes you to the rules and statutes covering the state MMJ program. It's very official, and I use it often as a highly trusted source for information (if you trust the government, of course).

So, now you know how to do my job. Good luck out there.
