Senate bill would give rural areas more medical marijuana dispensaries


State lawmakers are taking steps to ensure that rural residents have easy access to medical marijuana without having to grow their own. SB 1286 would require the Department of Health Services to give top priority to applications to locate dispensaries in areas of the state where there had been one before but now it’s gone. Sen. David Gowan, R-Sierra Vista, said this will address what has become a shortage of places for patients in some areas of the state to get the drugs they need.
