Glendale OKs 3 Medical-marijuana Facility Applications

Arizona Republic:  “The most likely way Glendale residents will know if a medical-marijuana facility sets up shop in the city is when the business opens.  The City Council in February adopted regulations for medical-marijuana facilities that don’t require merchants to apply for a conditional-use permit, which could trigger a public hearing. . . . Glendale has received nine applications since March 25. Five were either rejected by city planners because the location conflicted with the zoning or were withdrawn by the applicant.”
