How do I get my Medical Marijuana (MMJ) Card?
Click here to learn how to apply for your medical marijuana card. Once you’ve been approved for a medical card you can use it at any licensed dispensary for 2 years. Medical card holders pay lower taxes, have access to higher potency products and, at The Prime Leaf, receive additional discounts and specials. Arizona rules and regulations require that a patient’s card is verified in person by a dispensary agent before any medicine can be provided.
How do I use cannabis?
The experience of using cannabis comes with a learning curve, no matter your age, medical condition, or previous knowledge. It is a relatively new and constantly evolving field, and some element of trial and error is to be expected. For detailed information about effects of cannabis, modes of administration, and necessary precautions, please read our constantly-updated educational material or visit one of our locations to speak with a Patient Consultant. Always feel free to contact us for specific inquiries about any of our products and how to use them.
How much cannabis can I buy? How does my medical allotment work?
Arizona Medical marijuana card holders are allotted 70 grams (2.5 ounces) per 14 day period, on a rolling basis. For example, if a patient buys 10 grams on the 1st of the month, they have 60 grams remaining for purchase until the 14th of that month, when that 10 grams returns to their allotment. Medical patients can check their allotment via their AZDHS Individual Licensing Portal at any time.
Adult-use patrons can purchase up to 1 ounce per day and can possess no more than 1 ounce at a time. Both purchase and possession for adult-use will be limited to no more than 5g of concentrates (including edibles, vaporizer cartridges, and any other prepared extraction).
What is the age limit for purchasing legal cannabis?
Arizonans of any age can be approved for a medical card. Minors must have parental permission and all card holders must receive a doctor’s approval. Adult-use patrons must be 21 or older.
How will my purchase be taxed?
State and local taxes are applied to medical purchases, which amounts to 8.7% in Tucson. An additional 16% “excise” tax is applied to all Arizona adult-use purchases for an effective recreational tax rate of 24.7%. These funds go directly back into the Arizona community to support various state agencies and are dispersed between community college districts, the newly established Justice Reinvestment Fund, and the Highway User fund.
Do you offer a rewards program?

Will my adult-use purchase history be tracked?
Not automatically. Adult-use patrons are welcome to shop anonymously but are encouraged to join our Prime Plus rewards program to receive exclusive discounts, rewards points and more. Prime Plus member profiles record your purchase history to make it easier to find the products and apply the specials that benefit you most!
You have so many promos! Can I combine two different discounts?
Loyalty points and other credits may be used at any time. Additional discounts may not be combined or “stacked” unless otherwise specified. We will always apply the largest discount available to you.
Is the dispensary pet-friendly?
The Prime Leaf is a pet-friendly establishment. We welcome all leashed and domesticated pets. Please be mindful of any patients with service animals, and respect their space. We may ask you to remove your animal from the premises if their presence causes disruptions or any issues for other patients.
Can I place an order for delivery?
The Prime Leaf currently does not have a delivery service but we welcome you to place an online order for same-day pickup and select the pick-up window that best suits your schedule!
Can I grow my own legal cannabis?
Adult-use cannabis can be grown by adults 21 or older, but cultivation is limited to 6 cannabis plants for individuals living alone and 12 plants for 2 or more adults over 21 living in the same residence.
Can I consume cannabis in public?
No. Public consumption is not permitted and violations will be treated as a petty offense.
