PHOENIX -- State health officials said a delay in opening the first medical marijuana dispensary in the Phoenix area means there will be a delay in starting to phase out cardholders' authorizations to grow their own.

A Glendale dispensary became the first to be licensed last week. The Department of Health Services said the licensing triggered a medical marijuana law provision that will phase out growing authorizations for cardholders in nearly all of the Phoenix area as cards come up for annual renewals.

However, the department has said the Glendale dispensary isn't ready to open and its license's effective date will be reset in early December.

The department said that means the phase-out of growing authorizations for Phoenix-area cardholders hasn't started.

A Tucson dispensary is scheduled to be inspected Tuesday.
