Frequently Asked Questions

Is Recreational Marijuana Legal in Arizona?

On November 3, 2020, voters approved Proposition 207 in Arizona, meaning that people aged 21 or over can possess and grow marijuana for recreational purposes. The proposition becomes official when the election results are canvassed Nov. 30.

Adults can grow six plants at home, and no more than 12 plants in a house with more than one adult.

Dispensary operators are hoping to be able to offer recreational sales by April 20, 2021. There are around about 120 dispensaries operating today in Arizona, and these should be able to provide recreational cannabis by next year.

Starting July 12, people who were arrested, charged with, adjudicated or convicted, or sentenced for possessing two and a half ounces or less of marijuana, not more than 12.5 grams of concentrate, or having six marijuana plants, or marijuana paraphernalia, can petition to have the record expunged.

Residents of Arizona 21 and older may posses up to 1 ounce of usable marijuana or 5 grams of concentrate.

There are fewer workplace protections for recreational cannabis users, so employers may still refuse you employment based on cannabis use.

Cost of Getting an Arizona MMJ Card and Medical Cannabis Certificate

$150 for new applicants. $75 for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants. This does not include the physician’s fee, which is $100 (subject to change).

How Old Do I Have to Be to Apply for an Arizona Medical Marijuana Card?

You must be aged 18 years old or over in order to apply for a medical marijuana card for yourself. Caregivers must be 18 years old or over.

What documents do I need for an Arizona medical marijuana card?

Valid ID from the state of Arizona. Driver’s licence, passport or state-produced ID card – patients must be a resident of Arizona, unless they are visiting qualifying patients. To qualify for the Arizona program, you must have Arizona-issued ID. Visiting qualifying patients will need appropriate ID from their home state.

Proof of address – bank statement, utility bill, correspondence with a state department.

Medical records – progress/doctor’s notes, medical images, medication list.

Can an Arizona Medical Marijuana Patient Grow Cannabis?

Only qualifying patients who live more than 25 miles away from a legally recognized marijuana dispensary may cultivate medical marijuana. Up to 12 cannabis plants can be grown for a qualifying individual.

Arizona Caregivers' MMJ Recommendation

Patient fills in caregiver information on the application form for medical marijuana. Caregivers must be aged 21 or over to get a Caregiver’s MMJ recommendation.

Does Arizona Have Medical Marijuana Reciprocity?

Yes, to a limited extent. Limited reciprocity is available to ‘visiting qualifying patients’. In order to qualify, the patient: (1) must not be a resident of Arizona (or has resided in Arizona for less than 30 days), (2) must have been diagnosed with a medical condition recognized under the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act, and (3) must possess a medical marijuana registration card or its equivalent that was issued pursuant to the laws of another state. The out-of-state registration card has the same force and effect as a card issued in Arizona except that the visiting qualifying patient may not purchase medical marijuana in Arizona.

How Long Does it take to Get My Arizona MMJ Card?

It can take 7 – 14 days in order to get a physical copy of your Arizona MMJ card.

Overview of Arizona Medical Marijuana Laws

2010 – Ballot Proposition 203 “The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act” is approved. This means that a patient with a written or oral recommendation by a physician could use, cultivate and possess cannabis.

2012 – the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) released the revised rules for regulating medical marijuana. Arizona’s first medical marijuana dispensary, ‘Arizona Organic’ also opens up.

2013 – Governor Jan Brewer signs Senate Bill 1443.

Medical marijuana patients may possess up to 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana.

Home cultivation is only allowed if patient lives more than 25 miles away from the nearest dispensary. A maximum of 12 plants may be grown, if they are cultivated in an enclosed, locked facility.

Dispensaries operate on a “not-for-profit” basis. Profiting from cannabis sales may be used as evidence of a federal crime!

Arizona has a Caregiver program.
