That’s the proposed timeline for the opening of an MMJ pharmacy in the southern state, slightly two years after Gov. John Bel Edwards signed into law a new but very restrictive medical cannabis program.
Rx Greenhouse was chosen from a pool of eight applicants to run an MMJ pharmacy in the New Orleans area.
The pharmacy will be located in Metairie, a New Orleans suburb, but it’s awaiting final approval from the Louisiana Pharmacy Board.
The board will also be licensing another eight MMJ pharmacies, for a total of nine across the state’s health-care regions, The Times-Picayune reported.
Louisiana law does not allow for cannabis flower to be sold at MMJ pharmacies; only pills, topicals and oils will be allowed for patients.
Rx Greenhouse also operates a dispensary in Maryland.
