West Virginia’s 1st medical cannabis dispensary has opened in Morgantown.
Hampshire County’s one licensed dispensary looks to open in about 3 months if supply chain issues and a new location can be worked out, the owners say.
Curative Growth Inc. of Fairmont confirmed last week that it has applied to the state’s Office of Medical Cannabis for approval to move from the location in Springfield that it won a license for to Sunrise Summit.
Curative Growth said it will occupy the back end of the building that houses Jill’s Barber Shop, with an address of 22 Hannas Drive.
Jill’s announced last month that it will remain in operation.
The owners also set a date.
“As part of the application to move locations, we submitted a projected opening around Feb 28th,” Curative Growth said.
But, the company warned, “supply chain issues and contractor availability continue to cause delays.”
That could make sticking to the timeline a challenge.
Opening day at Morgantown’s Trulieve Medical Dispensary on Nov. 12 saw patients lining the walkway waiting for the much-delayed arrival.
Medical cannabis was signed into law in 2017 with a projected start date of July 1, 2019. More than 2 years later, registered medical marijuana patients can finally use their medical cards.
