Yesterday, choosing from 27 applications – the Connecticut officials in charge of the state’s medical marijuana programreleased sweet new details regarding the state’s first half-dozen medical marijuana dispensaries given the green light to operate. Soon, state sanctioned MMJ patients in the communities of South Windsor, Bristol, Hartford, Bridgeport, Brantford, and Uncasville will have safe and unfettered access to their state sanctioned medicine.
While Connecticut decriminalized the possession of marijuana back in 2011, the opening of these six facilities means patients who suffer from ailments like posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), spinal cord injuries, and multiple sclerosis – and who have registered with the states medical marijuana program – will now be able to legally buy their medical marijuana in the light of day.
According to the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection Commissioner, William M. Rubenstein, “As retail points from which products are dispensed and educational materials are provided to patients, the dispensary facilities will be the public face of Connecticut’s medical marijuana program, and therefore, careful thought and deliberation went into selection of the most qualified applicants.”
So, without any further ado… here they are, Connecticut’s newest medical marijuana dispensaries:
Arrow Alternative Care, Inc., at 92 Weston Street in Hartford
Bluepoint Apothecary, LLC, at 469 East Main Street in Branford
D & B Wellness, LLC, at 2181 Main Street in Bridgeport
Prime Wellness of Connecticut, LLC, at 75 John Fitch Boulevard in South Windsor
Thames Valley Apothecary, LLC, at 1100 Norwich-New London Turnpike (Route 32), in Uncasville
The Healing Corner, Inc., at 159 East Main Street in Bristol
A stoked Rubenstein concluded, “With the selection of dispensary facilities, all necessary pieces of the medical marijuana program are in place and we are poised to provide patients with a safe and secure source of needed medicine.”
That smells like progress to me…
