PHOENIX (AP) - More medical-marijuana dispensaries are on the horizon for Arizona as the state will begin accepting applications for dispensary certifications this summer.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (https://bit.ly/1nciOLI ) that the Arizona Department of Health Services has not set an exact date to begin accepting applications for remaining dispensary certificates.

When Arizona voters legalized medical marijuana in 2010, the state issued 99 licenses for dispensaries. One dispensary is allowed in each of the state’s 126 health districts.

ADHS officials say applicants will again need to have special zoning approval, appropriate facilities and a criminal-record check to be considered for the lottery for the remaining licenses. A requirement that applicants have $150,000 was removed in December 2012.
