Chandler’s Marijuana-dispensary Restrictions Could be too Strict

Arizona Republic:  “Less than a week after the Chandler City Council denied a permit for its only medical-marijuana dispensary applicant, some members say their zoning rules may be too restrictive. . . . Only three commercial areas meet the distance requirements, and landlords there are refusing to rent to a dispensary, planner Jodie Novak said. That makes it unlikely that the city will have any dispensaries when the state starts approving locations in August.”

Chandler OKs Medical-marijuana Cultivation Site

Arizona Republic:  “The Chandler City Council Thursday night said no to a medical-marijuana dispensary at Dobson and Frye roads, but it said yes to growing the drug indoors south of Chandler Boulevard and east of 56th Street.  The cultivation site will be at 6730 W. Chicago St., in west Chandler near I-10, if the applicant wins state approval. That city permit had been requested by Arizona Organix, a non-profit corporation run by Phoenix resident Bill Myer, who owns a real estate license, and his son, Ben, a 2005 graduate of Arizona State University.”

Chandler City Council Passes Tough Medical Marijuana Zoning

Arizona Republic:  “A divided Chandler City Council approved medical marijuana zoning regulations that are among the Valley’s most restrictive and leave few locations for potential dispensaries. . . . So many commercial areas are close to subdivisions that this reduces potential Chandler dispensary locations to a handful of sites along Interstate 10, Price Road and the Santan Freeway.”

Chandler Working on Tough Medical-marijuana Zoning

Arizona Republic:  “Chandler’s regulations for medical-marijuana dispensaries will likely be more restrictive than those in other Valley cities, forcing greater distances from schools, churches, day care centers and public parks and requiring additional permits for dispensaries that also grow marijuana. . . . Under the proposed Chandler law, dispensaries must be at least 5,280 feet from another medical-marijuana facility”
