The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act called upon ADHS to create a system to govern the medical use of marijuana. This system includes a method for approving, renewing, and revoking the registration of qualifying patients, designated caregivers, non-profit medical marijuana dispensaries, and non-profit medical marijuana dispensary agents. Past milestones in the development of the system as well as upcoming dates are listed below.
