Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Phoenix Opens to Patients

The first medical marijuana dispensary in Phoenix has opened its doors on the city’s east side. The Bloom Dispensary is located near the light rail station at Washington and 44th Streets.

They’ll need their medical marijuana certification cards issued by the state, as well as a photo ID. Products available include multiple strains of the drug and marijuana foods, like brownies.
