If voters say yes, the operators of the first medical marijuana dispensary say they can open the doors a day after the election.

The Medical Marijuana Dispensaries of Arizona facility in North Phoenix is described as a fully functional state-of-the-art medical marijuana dispensary that the owners expect will set the standard for all future Arizona dispensaries. The state Health Department has 120 days to finalize rules for implementation of medical marijuana.

Dispensary spokesman Allan Sobol says the dispensary is intended to blend into the community and be non-offensive and non threatening.

Proposition 203 says legalizing medical marijuana applies only to patients with diseases including cancer, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, glaucoma, and Crohn’s disease, among others.
