Arizona Republic: “Tempe Marketplace and Ikea could soon have medical-marijuana dispensaries as neighbors if the state approves two sites near the mega retail centers.”
Arizona Republic: “Tempe’s central Valley location and proximity to the nation’s largest university campus at 58,371 students has turned the 41-square mile city into a magnet for medical-marijuana entrepreneurs. Although the state has only approved Tempe for two medical marijuana dispensaries, the city’s zoning department has received 48 applications.” See the addresses approved by Tempe for dispensaries to date.
Arizona Republic: “”A crowd of medical marijuana supporters attended a Tempe City Council meeting to demand that council members respect the ‘will of the voters’ who passed Proposition 203 in November. . . . Many of the medical marijuana advocates took issue with the proposed Tempe ordinance requiring dispensaries be located only in industrial areas and operate only in the daytime.”
