Arizona officials approve first licenses for recreational marijuana sales

PHOENIX – Arizona officials on Friday approved the first 86 licenses for marijuana dispensaries to sell cannabis to adults for recreational use.

The Arizona Department of Health Services said six other applications submitted since the process began Wednesday remain under review.

The approved sites can start selling marijuana for recreational as soon as they are ready, according to an ADHS spokesman.

Fifty-six of the newly licensed dispensaries are in the Phoenix area.

In November, Arizona voters approved Prop 207 to legalize sales and possession of 1 ounce or less for non-medicinal purposes for people ages 21 and up.

Applicants had to undergo an FBI background check and pay a $25,000 fee to ADHS.
