Although a state law may allow patients and caregivers to cultivate marijuana for medical use at home, many municipalities have not been so eager to give the go-ahead.
Coolidge City Council members were on the fence about the idea when presented with a potential zoning code amendment that would enable medical marijuana patients to cultivate the plant at home. The item was tabled for a review at a later date.
Under A.R.S. 36-2804, qualifying individuals can cultivate marijuana if they do not reside within 25 miles of a medical marijuana dispensary.
“It’s important on both a state and local level, that we ensure consistency in the rules, regulations and application of the same, to ensure that qualifying patients and designated caregivers clearly understand what is allowed and what is not.”
