TUCSON, Ariz. -- A facility that would be Tucson's first medical marijuana dispensary has passed its state inspection, but it's not known when it will open.

Harmony Duport heads the state Department of Health Service's inspections office. She said the dispensary operators have permission to open their doors but so far haven't set a date to do so.

State officials are allowed under the medical marijuana law to identify the dispensary only to cardholders.

Duport said once the facility opens, that will trigger the law's provision to phase out grow-your-own authorizations for cardholders within 25 miles of a dispensary. That would apply to nearly all of the Tucson area.

The provision would apply immediately to people obtaining new cards and to current holders as their cards come up for renewal annually.
