Medical Marijuana Store Set To Open In Fort Collins

Fort Collins, Colo. (AP) A Fort Collins couple is opening a store to sell medical marijuana.

Store owners James and Pat Fleming say they plan to serve the needs of people who suffer from chronic pain and other illnesses and that they're “not out to be legal drug dealers.”

The Enerchi Healing Center store would be the first of its kind in Fort Collins. Other services they will offer include yoga, hypnosis, nutrition and meditation.

Fort Collins police spokeswoman Rita Davis says what the Flemings are doing is legal as long as they are certified to grow marijuana and they sell it to users with a doctor's prescription and a state-issued registration card.

Marijuana use for medical purposes became legal in Colorado when voters approved amendment 20 in 2000.

The store opens Monday.
