Testing your medicine

Published on the day : 17/7/2020

The Department licensed 99 dispensaries in 2012 and re-opened the dispensary licensing application process almost 5 years later, in July of 2016 – 31 additional licenses were awarded after 750 applications were submitted, making a total of 130 dispensaries in Arizona.

Moreover, Arizona has never included cannabis testing requirements in its legislation. Newly passed SB 1494 in June of 2019, is largely an instruction manual on how to establish a state-certified marijuana-testing industry.

The state shall certify cannabis-testing labs and lab assistants, requiring them to adopt “basic minimum standards”. Tests of samples of all the medical marijuana, concentrates, gummies, and other products sold at dispensaries will be governed by new standards and rules. Testing must begin by November 1, 2020. After that, patients can demand to see the test results from any particular batch of cannabis products. Companies flagged for repeated violations of various standards will be fined.
