In November 2010, voters passed the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act. The citizen initiative (Proposition 203) called on the Arizona Department of Health Services to create a medical marijuana program within 120 days from the official election results. Qualifying patients began applying for identification cards on April 14, 2011, and it is our goal to begin accepting dispensary applications as soon as this April. All information will be made available on this website as soon as it is ready. You can also find historical documents from the development of the program.
