PHOENIX — Arizona’s largest marijuana dispensary is opening its first Phoenix location on Monday and is offering freebies in celebration.

Mint Dispensary will open its third Valley location on the northwest corner of Cave Creek and Bell roads.

Free uninfused food including tacos and cake will be served in the parking lot of the 5,000-square-foot location from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

“In bringing the Mint Dispensary to Phoenix, we will fill a critical gap for customers who currently travel long distances for the wide variety of products we offer,” Eivan Shahara, CEO of the dispensary’s parent company, said in a press release.

“By opening a separate cultivation facility in Phoenix, we will be able to increase production of our high-quality products.”

The dispensary is also offering a promotion throughout March for those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine.

Anyone 21 or older who presents a vaccination card will receive a free infused edible.

Mint also has locations in Tempe and Mesa and has been open for business in the Valley since 2017.
