Cities work on regulations for medical pot shops

Some 1,300 people waiting for medical marijuana cards in Colorado are in limbo because of a dispute over which doctors can recommend pot.  Colorado health regulators are puzzling over how to interpret a new state law requiring doctors that recommend pot to be "in good standing." The requirement, which took effect in July, led the state to send rejection letters to thousands of marijuana-card applicants who used recommendations from doctors with restrictions or conditions on their medical licenses.

Cities in eastern metro Phoenix are working on local laws to regulate the locations of medical marijuana dispensaries.

Gilbert’s planning commission is expected to make a recommendation to the Town Council in December. A vote is scheduled for January.

Mesa is expected to formally adopt its regulations in January.

The new voter-approved law to legalize medical marijuana in Arizona lets cities regulate the shops but they cannot prohibit them.

Teams of state workers will work to make sure the medical marijuana rules are in place by April.

About 120 medical marijuana dispensaries will be allowed around the state.
