Phoenix prepares for legalization of recreational marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, April, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical-marijuana facilities may soon have fewer options of where to open in Phoenix, through zoning changes the city is considering in advance of a possible statewide vote to make recreational use of the drug legal.

The city’s planning and development department is proposing stricter regulations for new dispensaries, cultivation sites and infusion facilities. Industry advocates say the changes would make it even more difficult to find locations where they could operate.

It should not be a federal crime."
