Supporters of medical marijuana around the nation are buzzing as Arizona's fist medical marijuana dispensary is set to open at 10 a.m. today.
Arizona Organix, located at 5301 West Glendale Avenue in Glendale, is ready to do business. The cash-only operation will include an onsite ATM, 15 security cameras, and bullet-proof windows. Owners say they were unable to get banks to agree to take credit cards from the business out of fear of violating federal laws that prohibit banks from engaging in (ahem) illegal conduct.
About 200 patients are expected to show up today.
Maricopa County is still looking for ways to shut down the dispensary. The county attorney's office claims it lacks proper licensing, but according to the store's owners, their licenses come from the City of Glendale, which controls zoning, and the state, which issued the dispensary license.
