Deadlines coming up for potential marijuana dispensary applicants in Arizona

By Edward Celaya | Arizona Daily Star

Time is running out to take mandatory training and education classes offered by Arizona’s health department for potential candidates to the state’s adult-use marijuana “social equity ownership program.”

The deadline to take the class is Wednesday, Nov. 17.

“A lot of people don’t know about that deadline,” said Rana Lashgari, president of Arizona Municipal Strategies, a Phoenix-based lobbying group partnering with the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, Local 99, to create the Arizona Marijuana Equity Center, a service to help potential social equity ownership applicants apply. “And if you don’t complete it by the 17th, you can’t apply.”

Passed as part of Proposition 207, which made adult-use recreational marijuana legal in Arizona, the “social equity ownership” program sets aside 26 licenses for “people from communities disproportionately impacted by the enforcement of previous marijuana laws.”
