“It’s been a year since David Grandon opened the nonprofit Grassroots Medical Center on Switzer Canyon Road to provide medical services and a marijuana exchange for card-holding patients.  He had high hopes then that he would eventually transition his operation into a full-blown medical marijuana dispensary. Grandon is a well-known Flagstaff artist who is currently working on a large mural at the Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy.  Those hopes were dashed in early August, when the medical marijuana dispensary permit was awarded to someone else in the state lottery amid accusations of rule violations.”
