About Cannabis in Tempe
Tempe, also known as Hayden’s Ferry during the territorial times of Arizona, is a city in Maricopa County, Arizona, United States, with the Census Bureau reporting a 2017 population of 185,038. Tempe is also the location of the main campus of Arizona State University.
Tempe is an inner suburb, located between the core city of Phoenix and the rest of the East Valley. Due to this as well as being the home of the main campus of Arizona State University, Tempe has a fairly dense, urbanized development pattern in the northern part of the city with a growing skyline. Going south, development becomes less dense, consisting of single-family homes, strip malls and lower-density office parks.
Veriheal plays a role in the city in providing services in curing medical ailments to people thru medical marijuana, as it has shown positive effects in treating several medical conditions. In 2010, Arizona voters passed Proposition 203, legalizing the medical use of marijuana under the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (AMMA). In order to use medical marijuana, you must be a qualifying patient who has registered with the Arizona Department of Health Services and received a registry identification card or medical marijuana card and meet the criteria to qualify as an Arizona medical marijuana patient.
