Very First Medical Marijuana Dispensary Opens for Business in Cape Girardeau

The Greenlight Dispensary in Cape Girardeau officially opened to members of the general public in Cape Girardeau on Monday. It is the very first medical marijuana dispensary to open for business in this region. On Sunday, officials were checking off all the last minute items, putting labels on products and ensuring they were ready to open for business on Monday morning. Dispensary officials say they believe it is important to have a dispensary open in this region because there is a large patient base in Cape Girardeau County alone and also in the surrounding counties and this dispensary was opened to provide assistance to individuals who have been approved to utilize medical marijuana and to receive their medical cards. The dispensary is open for business everyday of the week from 10.a.m. to 8.p.m.. Officials also plan on opening additional dispensaries in the region in the future.
