Ballot Proposition 203 "The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act" was approved in 2012. This means that a patient with a written or oral certificate by a physician could use, cultivate and possess cannabis. Arizona’s first medical marijuana dispensary, Arizona Organic, opened in 2012.
Like many other states, Arizona has expanded its telemedicine services and has ordered insurance companies to expand coverage (although medical cannabis is unlikely to be covered by insurance due to its federally illegal status). The barriers have been lowered, meaning that you can speak to a physician online about medical cannabis certification.
Recreational, adult-use marijuana is legal in Arizona. For those 21 or older, possession of up to 1 ounce (28 g) of marijuana (with no more than 5 grams being marijuana concentrate), or growing up to 6 marijuana plants at their home (with up to 12 marijuana plants in households with two or more adult members) is now legal.
