Scottsdale says no to medical marijuana bakery

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — A request to open a medical marijuana bakery in the Scottsdale Airpark has been rejected by city councilors.

The Arizona Republic reports ( Pure Bliss Premium Medibles sought a conditional-use permit to operate the bakery at a site near Redfield and Hayden roads. The site previously was approved for two dispensaries that never opened.

A majority of the council denied the request during a meeting Tuesday.

Councilman Dennis Robbins says he didn’t think the proposal met the city’s criteria for conditional-use permits.

The request would have allowed for a wholesale bakery where medical marijuana could be infused into edible goods. Pure Bliss was to operate in conjunction with a medical marijuana outlet in Mesa.

Scottsdale Planning Director Tim Curtis says the applicant can revise the application and re-apply. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
