First medical marijuana dispensary opens in Yuma

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Sat, August, 17th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-dispensary-yumaYuma’s first medical marijuana dispensary had a “soft opening” Wednesday.
 
Jamestown Center, located at 4104 E. 32nd St., is a state-approved medical cannabis dispensary.
 
"We are excited to be the first dispensary in Yuma County to receive approval to operate from Arizona Department of Health Services," said Susan H., the center’s general manager. She declined to provide her last name.
 
Jamestown Center offers eight strains of medical marijuana to patients in Yuma and the surrounding communities.
 
The dispensary, which took its name from the 1619 law requiring all Jamestown, Va., colony farmers to grown hemp, is staffed by three pharmacists and a biochemist. It will serve qualifying patients with medical marijuana cards issued by the state of Arizona. The law allows patients to have 2½ ounces of medical marijuana every 14 days.
 
The center has a medical director who will work “one-on-one” with patients to match conditions and symptoms with the appropriate cannabis strain. However, the medical director is not authorized to prescribe medical marijuana to clients.
 
“He’s only here to supervise employees and educate patients about health concerns, dosage and recommend routes of administration,” explained Susan H.
 
The medical director will also monitor patients’ side effects.
