Nature's AZ Medicine marijuana grow facility in Amado opened in 2015 and expanded three years later.

A medical marijuana grow facility in Amado notified Santa Cruz and Pima counties on Thursday that it is laying off 103 employees. 

The announcement comes amid reports that medical marijuana sales in Arizona have plummeted as recreational sales spike. 


Stanley Danielson of Rio Rico flashes a peace sign Friday outside Nature's AZ Medicine. He is among 103 employees laid off Thursday. They will work through Oct. 24.
