Glendale medical marijuana card holders will soon be able to have marijuana delivered to their doorstep.
City Council approved a law change allowing medical marijuana dispensaries in the city to deliver to customers with a 5-1 vote last week. The new law goes into effect Friday, June 28.
Planning Administrator David Williams said two key reasons for staff’s recommendation to approve the amendment were to decrease the use of illegal delivery services and to increase origin-based sales tax revenue by allowing legal deliveries from Glendale dispensaries rather than from the next town over. Dispensaries in cities where medical marijuana deliveries are legal can legal delivery into other Arizona cities.
