Among the winners of last week’s marijuana lottery — 13 dispensaries were awarded licenses to operate in rural areas of Arizona — was a partnership group that included Ronnie Kassab, president of JARS Arizona, and two executives at Payson’s Untamed Herbs Dispensary: Pam Donner and Andrew Provencio.
Untamed Herbs’ dispensary in Payson closed abruptly last month after the dispensary’s license was transferred to a JARS location in Phoenix. Having hit it big in the lottery, though, the partnership group is set to reopen a dispensary in Untamed Herbs location at 200 N. Tonto Street in Payson, rebranded under the JARS name.
“I am thrilled that we are going to be able to re-open the dispensary,” says Donner, who oversees the operations of the manufacturing and processing operation in Payson. “We are really happy for the community; Payson is a great town. We’ve been there a long time.” (Donner and Provencio also own the Payson General Store and CBD Outpost, both in Payson.)
