Accessing the Medical Marijuana Program

Medical marijuana patients in Arizona enjoy up to 16% lower prices than adult-use recreational marijuana because they are exempt from the excise tax (the "luxury tax") and only pay sales tax on their purchases.

To qualify as a patient, you’ll need to have one of the state-defined qualifying conditions for a medical marijuana card. Then you need to obtain a recommendation from a licensed physician (in-person and telemedicine marijuana evaluations are available). Then, every two years, you’ll need to renew your AZ MMJ card to continue to enjoy these privileges.

Arizona Medical Marijuana Dispensary Prices

Medical marijuana businesses tend to charge slightly lower prices than recreational businesses, though costs will vary according to the location, quality, and strain.
