ATLANTA, GA – The landscape of medical marijuana access in Georgia is set to broaden as the state’s Medical Cannabis Commission recently greenlit the establishment of three additional dispensaries, according to WSB.
Trulieve, an existing player in the market with a branch in Marietta, is poised to extend its reach with a new location in Evans, situated within Columbia County. Meanwhile, Botanical Sciences, which presently operates in Pooler, Georgia, is opening two new dispensaries – one in Chamblee and another in Stockbridge.
At present, Georgia has only four operational medical marijuana dispensaries, two of which are located in the metropolitan Atlanta area. The approval of these new dispensary sites demonstrates a proactive move by the state to improve patient access to medical cannabis, potentially alleviating the challenges faced by patients seeking treatment.
As the state continues to assess and respond to the demand for medical marijuana, more dispensaries are anticipated to emerge in the future.
