Florida’s First Medical Cannabis Dispensary to Open Next Week
The first state-sanctioned medical cannabis dispensary in Florida’s history will open on Tuesday, July 26th in Tallahassee.
Trulieve announced today that they’ve received approval from the Florida Department of Health to begin dispensing low-THC cannabis products such as tinctures, oils and pills. They’re the first outlet in the state to receive such approval, which is possible due to the passage of the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act (passed in 2014) which allows those with certain conditions such as cancer and epilepsy to use medical cannabis if they receive a recommendation from a physician.
“We are happy to announce that we have passed all inspections— from growing and processing to dispensing— and are the very first medical cannabis provider in the state to receive these formal authorizations. And we are most excited to get this much anticipated medicine to the patients of Florida,” says Kim Rivers, CEO for Trulieve. “The Department of Health staff and leadership have been consummate professionals throughout this entire process. They have been accessible and knowledgeable all along the way, and we simply could not ask for better public servants.”
