Now that medical marijuana is legal in Arizona and there are medical marijuana dispensaries popping up all over the place, it is easy to think that selling pot is legal. This is not true. To be able to sell marijuana there are applications, fees and a license you have to get from the state. It is impossible to tell from a store front whether or not they have a license, but police in Tempe busted one place for selling pot without a license. Three employees of the establishment known as Delta 9 were arrested and the shop was shut down. Selling marijuana, even in this day and age of medical marijuana, is still just as illegal if you don’t have the proper license. Buying it without a medical marijuana card is also just as illegal is it was a few years ago.
