Phoenix's first medical marijuana dispensary opens

Updated:
PHOENIX -

The first licensed medical marijuana dispensary in Phoenix will serve its first customers on Wednesday.

Bloom Sky Train had originally planned to begin serving customers on Saturday, but a computer server run by Arizona Department of Health Services was down and they were unable to sell anything.

The dispensary is located next to Phoenix's new Sky Train Terminal and the 44th Street light rail station.

Medical marijuana was approved by voters in 2010. More than 35,000 Arizonans have medical marijuana cards in order to treat certain medical conditions.

In addition to its healing effects, a recent study found that medical marijuana will create up to 1,500 jobs for Arizonans.
