The City of Phoenix approved the permit for a nonprofit medical marijuana dispensary facility at 10443 North 32nd Street (SE corner 32nd St and Shea). The permit comes with the following stipulations:
Despite the restrictions, some community members are concerned how close in proximity it is to nearby schools. The location is .5 miles from Shadow Mountain High School, as is an existing liquor store.
However the concern remains and many residents are looking at changing existing zoning regulations. A recent AZ Republic article interviewed Louisa Ward over the neighborhood concerns. Louisa said “many of her neighborhoods would support the proposed increases in distance.”
Ryan Hurly, chair of Rose Law Group’s medical marijuana practice group, said the proposed changes to the zoning would make it “next to impossible” to find a site that doesn’t require variances he said. The city has existing spacing requirements that ensure medical-marijuana facilities are not too close to one another. The city has been more conservative recently in approving new medical-marijuana facilities, Hurley said. But neighborhood complaints wane after a facility is operating, he said.
