Looking for the best marijuana dispensaries in Phoenix, Arizona?
As of November 9th, 2016, Maricopa County has about 160 medical marijuana dispensaries registered with them–with 110 being located in the greater Phoenix area.
That’s a lot! Fortunately, there are also over 300 MMJ doctors registered with Maricopa County meaning not only do they have more than enough outlets for people wanting medicinal cannabis but also they have plenty of doctors who can write prescriptions for it too!
Given all these options–and more opening all of the time–it’s hard to decide which one is right for you.
Luckily, our guide offers up ten great locations spread out across the greater Phoenix area so you can make an informed decision on which dispensary best suits your needs!
Before I provide you with the best marijuana dispensaries in Phoenix and I also want to make sure understand Arizona laws associated with the use of recreational marijuana.
Under ARS 36-2852, adults who are 21 or older may now lawfully do the following things:
- Possess, transport, consume, manufacture, process, or purchase up to one ounce of marijuana or five grams of marijuana concentrate
- Possess, transport, cultivate or process up to six marijuana plants per individual or a maximum of 12 plants in a single residence for two or more adults
- Cultivation at home when the plants are contained in a locked closet, room, or greenhouse in which the plants are not visible to the public
- Transfer up to one ounce of marijuana or up to five grams of marijuana concentrate to another adult without pay
- Transfer up to six plants to another adult without pay
- Possess, purchase, or acquire marijuana paraphernalia
Under the new recreational marijuana law, however, adults who possess or use one or fewer ounces of marijuana cannot be criminally charged.
If you are caught with more than 2.5 ounces of marijuana, more than 12.5 grams of marijuana concentrate, or are caught selling marijuana without a license, you can still face severe charges in Arizona.
Possession of more than one ounce of marijuana up to 2.5 ounces is now a petty offense, but possession of larger amounts can still be prosecuted as a felony.
If you are younger than age 21, you can also face criminal charges if you use, possess, sell, cultivate, or transport marijuana.
