The first medical marijuana dispensary in the Kansas City area was a popular spot when it opened.
Dozens of people lined up outside Fresh Green in Lee’s Summit Monday to receive marijuana for medical needs. The state’s first two dispensaries opened Saturday in the St. Louis area. Voters approved medical marijuana in 2018. Supplies and the variety of marijuana are limited because only a few cultivators in the state have plants mature enough to harvest. Anyone wanting to buy the drug must have a state-issued medical marijuana card.
Most of the 192 approved dispensaries are expected to be open by the end of the year.
