Holders of medical-marijuana-registry identification cards on the northwest side will soon have a nearby option to obtain their medicine.

A new medical-marijuana dispensary, Catalina Hills Botanical Care, will open Tuesday at 12152 N. Rancho Vistoso Blvd. in Oro Valley.

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.
