Tucson pharmacy hopes to become pot dispensary

The operators of a Tucson pharmacy are hoping to be one of the first dispensaries in southern Arizona after Proposition 203 passed, legalizing medical marijuana in Arizona.

KVOA-TV reports The Medicine Shoppe on Euclid Avenue just opened up about four weeks ago, but they say they have known from the beginning that they will apply for a dispensary license.

Officials from the Arizona Department of Health Services say there will only be 124 dispensary licenses given across the state.

ADHS Director Will Humble said Monday they will now work on the rules and regulations for that application process.
