Maryland’s medical marijuana dispensaries finally opened this week after years of delay, but many are running out of the drug as limited supply is struggling to keep up with high demand.
Five of seven licensed dispensaries that started selling the drug in recent days say they’ve either completely or almost run out of flower — the raw part of the marijuana plant that is smoked or vaporized. The other two are limiting sales to a small group of preregistered patients.
Kannavis in Frederick County sold out of flower on its opening day Saturday, but still has pre-filled cartridges that can be attached to vaporizing pens. Like other dispensaries, Kannavis is banking on additional marijuana shipments before this weekend, and is keeping its patients updated on its Facebook page, website and email list.
“It’s all in a flux. We don’t have confirmation of anything at this point and that’s just the nature of the rollout of this industry,” said owner Jane Klink. “I wish we had something carved out in stone.”
Allegany Medical Marijuana Dispensary, one of the first two shops to open Friday, expects to run out of it’s remaining products Wednesday after serving about 150 patients. Most high-demand products including tinctures and creams have yet to arrive. [Read more at The Washington Post]
