Most Arizonans Live Within 25 Miles Of A Marijuana Dispensary

July 17, 2013

The merits, legality and logistics of Arizona’s Medical Marijuana Program have spent a lot of time in traditional courtrooms, even after a majority in the court of public opinion approved it at the ballot box in 2010.

As of last week, 35 medical marijuana dispensaries are open, after inspections and approval, and according to state Department of Health Services Director Will Humble’s blog, about 90 percent of Arizona residents live within 25 miles of an operating dispensary.

Humble joined Steve Goldstein in studio for an update on that and other public health issues.
