Medical Marijuana Dispensary to open in Lake Worth
Get prepared all you pot users. Lake Worth has the proud distinction of having the first medical marijuana dispensary in Palm Beach County to open at Noon on Tuesday at 1 South Dixie Highway directly across from City Hall, right in the heart of our city.
Knox Medical is head-quarterd in Miami. They say that "they are committed to ensuring that patients can access consistent and pure medical marijuana, in a professional setting, from the highest level of industry experts." The state has licensed seven organizations to grow, distribute and sell it. Approved doctors are charging around $200 for a patient visit in order to get a prescription and there is a 90 day waiting period for pot patients.
Some 250 counties and municipalities in Florida have blocked pot shops from opening within their borders.[PBPost] And unlike other municipalities, Lake Worth didn't pass a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries until March 2017. Too late for this one and the one that is going up on North Dixie Highway directly across from a Charter School.
And guess what...you won't have to pay any sales tax on this stuff. We are going to be amazed at all the people in pain roaming around our town.
