Arizona voters approved medical marijuana almost three years ago, but many residents still have some questions about cannabis and the way it is dispensed.

To celebrate six months in business, Harvest of Tempe, located at 710 W. Elliot Road in Tempe, is hoping to answer some questions. They’ll be hosting an open house and medical marijuana expo this Saturday, Nov. 16.

The open house will take place at the dispensary before it is open. From 8 to 9:30 a.m. the public will be allowed to come into the dispensary, take a tour and learn more about the process. There will be no product on the shelves during the open house.

“We anticipate some people from various organizations stopping by to figure out exactly what we are doing,” said Steve White, attorney for Harvest of Tempe. “We’ve had inquiries from a number of doctors’ offices and oncologists that have patients who use cannabis in their treatment. We also have a lot of folks who have spouses who can’t come into the dispensary and they want to know what their husband or wife is doing so they can come in and see it.”

Patients and non-patients will have a chance to speak with a doctor and the dispensary’s medical director to have their questions answered.

At 11 a.m. the shop will begin the medical marijuana expo for patients. White said they’ve gathered different questions from patients in the time they’ve been open and they’ll have classes hourly throughout the day to address those topics, like baking with cannabis and how to use a vaporizer.

Various organizations will be on hand to offer patients with certain ailments further support.

The expo will last until 5 p.m. Patients can visit the dispensary’s Facebook page or call or stop in for a full list of classes.

During the day Harvest of Tempe will also be raising money for needy patients.
