Delaware’s first medical marijuana dispensary will open on June 26, more than four years after lawmakers and Gov. Jack Markell first legalized pot for medicinal use.
The First State Compassion Center, located at 37 Germay Drive outside of Wilmington, will open from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on June 26. Patient orientations are planned for June 18 and June 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Patients attending the events, and the dispensary’s opening, must be registered medical marijuana cardholders with the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services and pre-register with the dispensary.
Some 340 Delawareans carry cards that allow them to use marijuana to treat a variety of conditions, and purchase marijuana at the dispensary when it opens later this month. [Read more at the Wilmington News Journal]
