A medical marijuana dispensary, also called “growing collective,” “medical marijuana club,” or “medical marijuana clinic,” is a location where patients can go to get medical marijuana.
In most states, medical marijuana dispensaries, clubs, clinics, or collectives are licensed and regulated by city or county business ordinances, although the state Attorney General's Office retains the legal authority to prosecute them under state law. This system can result in a confusing patchwork of medical marijuana dispensary regulations, which vary from city to city or county to county.
Cities commonly place restrictions on where medical marijuana dispensaries may legally locate, their hours of operation, how they should operate, and other rules.
