Phoenix pot clinic nears opening

Medical marijuana users are just a few weeks away from seeing their first center open. KTAR Radio reports the center in north Phoenix will be headquarters for almost 50 caregivers and hundreds of patients who use medical marijuana.

Compassion First Caregivers’ spokesman Kendrick Speagle says there’s a sense of relief the marijuana clinic will finally open on Feb. 18.

A Maricopa County Superior Court judge ruled last month the state had no discretion on implementation of the dispensary portion of the medical marijuana law approved by Arizona voters in 2010.

Delays in medical marijuana included Attorney General Tom Horne’s civil action asking a Maricopa County Superior Court judge to issue an opinion on the legality of cannabis clubs’ operations and to stop them from giving marijuana to patients for a “membership fee.”
