AZ Town to Ban Adult-Use Marijuana Dispensaries and Testing Labs

PHX Dispensary

Another Arizona town is attempting to ban aspects of the state’s new recreational marijuana law, known as Prop 207 as well as the Smart and Safe Arizona Act.

The town council in Paradise Valley, an affluent suburb of Phoenix, will be discussing the implementation of an ordinance to ban recreational dispensaries and cannabis testing labs. Medical marijuana dispensaries will not be affected.

The ordinance reads, in part, “the Town seeks to protect the public health, safety and welfare by prohibiting marijuana establishments and/or marijuana testing facilities in the Town.”

The town is also attempting to ban marijuana cultivation.

In late 2020, Payson, Gilbert, Sahuarita and other cities and towns put local restrictions on aspects of the state’s adult-use marijuana law.
