Medical marijuana registry identification card holders on the northwest side will soon have a nearby option to seek their medicine.

A new medical marijuana dispensary, Catalina Hills Botanical Care, is located in Oro Valley at 12152 N. Rancho Vistoso Blvd. The facility opens Tuesday. Its hours will be 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.

In 2010, Arizona voters approved a proposition that legalized medical marijuana use.

The Arizona Department of Health Services says dispensaries must use exterior lighting, surveillance cameras and security equipment to restrict access to certain areas.
