A grower in Arizona can be a cardholder or a registered patient’s caregiver who is designated and approved to cultivate or grow marijuana. A designated grower can grow marijuana for qualifying patient’s medical use only. For a patient who is registered and has a medical marijuana card, it is optional for him to cultivate or grow his own marijuana or to designate a grower.
The designated grower must be at least 21 years of age and agree to assist a registered qualifying patient’s medical use of marijuana. There can be reimbursements for the actual costs incurred in assisting a registered patient in using cannabis if the patient and the grower are connected and registered with the Department’s Registration Process. A grower must not have any background of an excluded felony offense.
- Must be in an enclosed or locked facility.
- Residency must be twenty-five miles away from any nearest dispensary.
- Can grow up to twelve plants for each registered patient for whom he is designated as grower.
