ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Channel 9 anchor Greg Warmoth got an up close look inside a medical marijuana dispensary in Florida.
Voters last November approved the amendment that would legalize medical marijuana.
Implementing the law has come with a few speed bumps on how to sell dispensaries to local communities.
Knox Medical showed Eyewitness News during a taping of "Central Florida Spotlight" where patients will go to get their medicinal cannabis.
“These are our store prototypes. That's why we should be in the retail, in the medical communities, near hospitals, not in seedy areas of town where we don't want our patients to be going in order to get access to the medicines that they need,” said Tara Tedrow, attorney for Knox Medical.
Knox Medical currently produces Charlotte’s Web for children with seizures and high-level THC cannabis for terminally ill patients only at nurseries in Winter Garden.
Widespread availability for patients is what is still being hammered out by the legislature. But how to get it and where is still a question.
“The unknown is what makes people so uneasy. Correct people are really resistant to change and that's what we are really seeing here, but 71 percent of the population voted for it,” said Bruce Knox, with Knox Medical.
The medical marijuana will be administered as a vapor, similar to an E-cigarette.
