Arizona Republic:  “The Arizona Department of Health Services will hold a much-anticipated — and highly controversial — lottery on Tuesday to select medical-marijuana dispensaries.  State officials have decided to move forward with licensing the dispensaries, even as 13 county attorneys have urged Gov. Jan Brewer to halt the process and federal prosecutors have moved to shut down the nation’s largest medical-marijuana dispensary in California. The Los Angeles City Council, meanwhile, ordered each of the city’s 762 dispensaries to shut down.  Arizona health officials received 486 medical-marijuana dispensary applications from individuals or businesses that want to set up shop in 99 of the state’s 126 designated dispensary areas.”
