FAQs on Dispensaries in Tempe AZ

Can I go to any dispensary in Arizona?

Yes, as long as you have a legal ID showing that you are 21 years of age or older. Recreational weed was made legal in Arizona in November 2020. Now, anyone of legal age can shop for weed at any dispensary in Tempe, AZ, Scottsdale, Mesa and throughout the Grand Canyon state.

Can you go to a dispensary in Tempe AZ without a license?

Yes, but it’s not quite that simple. If you don’t have a driver’s license, you’ll need to provide another valid government-issued ID that shows you are 21 years of age or older in order to purchase weed from any dispensary in Tempe, Arizona. Forms of acceptable ID other than a driver’s license include a current passport or a state-issued ID card. Out-of-state licenses are also acceptable — again, as long as it is valid, current and shows you are over 21.

Are dispensaries in Tempe AZ cash only?

Yes. As with most states, federal law regarding the in-person purchase of cannabis in Arizona is a cash-only deal.
