DELTA, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT News)-- Voters in Delta approved the sale of medicinal pot this past November. Now, eight months later, the first medical pot shop is about to be open for business.
Green Meadows Dispensary says medical pot is in high demand. The team currently operates a store just ten miles south of Montrose city limits. The new Delta store will be divided into two sections. The public will be able to shop at the front of the store for CBD items and users with medical cards can shop for medical products at the back of the store. Folks over at Green Meadows recognize that there is some controversy and say they hope to change the stigma.
“People think that we’re using this just to get high or that we’re having fun but there’s so much new research coming out with how many diseases and ailments that this helps all the time,” says store manager, Ryan Hall.
Green Meadows was just approved for their license two days ago. No specific opening date yet, but they hope to have their grand opening in about two weeks.
