Arizona’s longstanding 130 medical cannabis businesses – which are vertically integrated, by law – may now each snag a second cultivation license under a relatively new interpretation of the recreational marijuana legalization initiative approved by voters last November. “Under the law, an MMJ establishment can have an offsite cultivation location and an adult-use marijuana establishment can have an offsite cultivation location,” Steve Elliott, spokesman for the Arizona Department of Health Services, wrote in an email to Marijuana Business Daily. “So each part of a shared operation can have a cultivation facility.” The agency’s public information officer, Holly Poynter, told MJBizDaily that medical marijuana companies can begin applying for their second cultivation permit on April 1 through the department’s website.
