Trulieve opened its 16th storefront at 9600 S.W. 77th Ave. in Miami's Dadeland on Tuesday.
It's the medical marijuana dispensary chain's second location in Miami-Dade County. It offers cannabis products with various devices to use them, such as vaporizers, flower for vaporizing, tinctures, syringes, capsules, a nasal spray and a topical cream.
“Expanding our reach in Miami-Dade has been a goal of ours since the beginning. As the number of registered patients continues to grow rapidly, our priority remains helping patients safely and readily access the products they rely on," said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers. "We’ve been able to help a large number of patients in the area who can’t make it to a physical location thanks to our statewide delivery program but we know that having a second location in Dadeland will help us continue bringing safe and effective care to the patients who need it most."
Florida is home to more than 1,600 registered ordering physicians of medical marijuana and 147,000 registered medical marijuana patients. Medical marijuana is available in Florida, however, remains illegal under federal law.
Although there are many companies eager to enter the state's cannabis industry, roadblocks still remain for the sector. Most recently, an appellate court refused to lift a stay on a Tallahassee judge’s ruling that would allow patients to smoke medical marijuana if their doctors approve it, according to the News Service of Florida. The 1st District Court of Appeal’s decision means that patients will continue to be barred from legally smoking medical marijuana for the foreseeable future.
Florida's medical marijuana industry is expected to exceed $1 billion in revenue by 2020.
