The road from marijuana exclusively used as medicine to recreational is one of many potholes.
There seems to always be a few difficulties to overcome, and Arizona is now seeing this firsthand after legalizing all adult-use marijuana last days.
According to a local news station, there are concerns that supply for those in need of medicinal marijuana may run short in the state after demand has boomed.
“I waited a very short period of time at the back of the line before I thought, ‘wow, this isn’t moving very quickly,’” says Sarah Burton, a Phoenix local. “No matter where you go, you’re running into problems.”
Of course, most of this is due to the initial excitement of the plant’s new legal status. Everything will eventually normalize, but for now, some Weed Shops are having to find ways to prioritize those in medicinal need.
“We are going to offer a four-hour window just for medicinal patients from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., and then from 12–10 p.m., we will blend both recreational and medicinal, but there will be two separate lines,” says Scott Pierce, owner of Herbal Wellness Center.
