Medical Marijuana: Available Next Week

Brett Levin

Low-THC marijuana treatments could be available as soon as next week.  Health officials have granted Trulieve authorization to process and dispense the drug.

Trulieve, the retail facing side of Hackney Nurseries’ medical marijuana operation, is the first dispensary approved to begin selling the drug.  Patients suffering from things like intractable epilepsy have been waiting on treatment for more than two years.  Hackney Nurseries is the license holder for Florida’s northwest region, and Trulieve is planning to open its doors and begin selling low-THC products to eligible patients by next week.  The company will begin statewide delivery for patients unable to travel to the Tallahassee facility shortly thereafter.
