Arizona Republic:  “Arizona’s top health official refused Wednesday to accept an application from prospective operators of a medical marijuana dispensary, setting the stage for a possible legal challenge to push for full implementation of a voter-approved law.  Department of Health Services Director Will Humble met with members of a group that wants to establish a dispensary in Scottsdale, but he politely declined to accept a binder with their application papers. The month long application period for dispensaries was to have begun Wednesday under rules previously adopted by the department.”
