Arizona Republic:  “If voters approve the medical-marijuana ballot proposition Nov. 2, health officials say the cash-strapped state will have to spend up to $1 million and work under a tight deadline to implement the law.  The Arizona Department of Health Services, which opposes the proposition but would be charged with regulating medical marijuana, says Proposition 203 would create huge obstacles for the department.”

“The department’s general-fund budget has decreased nearly 50 percent since fiscal 2008 and the number of staff numbers has dropped from 2,500 to 1,800,”

See “Entrepreneurs getting ready to sell marijuana.

“With three weeks left until the election, a growing network of people is already preparing for a potential medical-marijuana industry.  These entrepreneurs want to be the first in line to provide services to qualifying patients if the measure passes.”
