First Dispensary in Connecticut Opened Yesterday Without Any Cannabis


The first state-legal medical cannabis dispensary in Connecticut opened yesterday evening, though they didn’t actually have any herb to dispense.
Prime Wellness of Connecticut in South Windsor opened last night, though it was more of an open house. Patients and the public were invited in to check out the facilities and meet with the growers.

Brett Sicklick, director of operations for the shop, told the Connecticut Post that they’ll likely get their first shipment of bud next month. By that time, several other dispensaries should also be online. In total, Connecticut will license six dispensaries and four grow facilities.
In the meantime, Sicklick says he is training staff and has been holding consultations with medical cannabis patients. The one thing he can’t consult them on, however, is cost. He says he has no idea what bud will cost because he has no idea what he will have to pay for it from the producers.
The current medical marijuana dispensary program was approved in 2012.
