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.

To celebrate Pride, we teamed up with AZ-based drag superstar, @Dvyne_Valentino, to talk 🌱 🌱 , and pay homage to the LGBTQ cult classic film, Victor/Victoria, starring Dame Julie Andrews. 

“As a person who likes to use all the colors in my crayon box it’s important to show my pride so that the people that are watching know that it’s ok to be whoever they want to be. It’s always best to their best authentic self.” – Dvyne Valentino.

Happy Pride month! We asked engineer, songwriter, and recording artist @Allwhitebrix, "What does Pride mean to you?" this is his response:

"Being an independent artist, music has always been a form of self expression and that's what pride means to me. Everyone should be able to be who they are and love who they love no matter how they may identify. Love is love. "
