Licensed marijuana dispensary opens in Phoenix

medical marijuanaPhoenix’s first licensed medical marijuana dispensary has opened its doors, but it can’t serve any customers.

Bloom Sky Train executive director Lezli Engelking says a computer server run by the Arizona Department of Health Services was down Saturday and affected all of the state’s marijuana dispensaries.

Bloom Sky Train has rescheduled its grand opening for Wednesday.

The dispensary is adjacent to the city’s new Sky Train Terminal and the 44th Street light rail station.

Arizona voters approved medical marijuana by about 4,300 votes in 2010, authorizing its use for cancer and certain other medical conditions.

The Department of Health Services oversees Arizona’s medical marijuana program and regulates dispensaries where patients and caregivers can legally buy marijuana. More than 35,000 people in Arizona have medical marijuana cards.
