First medical marijuana dispensary in KC area seeing high demand – KMBC Kansas City


Demand is high at the first medical marijuana dispensary to open in the Kansas City area. Hundreds of patients have been through Fresh Green Dispensary in Lee’s Summit since they opened Monday, some waiting up to seven hours in line. For security, the dispensary keeps a one-to-one patient-employee ratio, so only a few patients can come in at a time. Bianca Sullivan, who owns the dispensary with her husband, Rob, said she has been surprised by the magnitude of the demand.On Tuesday, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services said it’s investigating a complaint of mold on marijuana from a St. Louis-area dispensary. While Fresh Green uses the same cultivator, Sullivan said they don’t carry the specific strain that’s in question. Per protocol, all of their product is tested before going on the shelves. Sullivan said they’ve had patients with cancer and other serious ailments who are hoping to find relief with medical marijuana. “I had a lot of people that, you know, had said this was the only thing that could help them and they really wanted to purchase from a legal dispensary and they were just they were really happy,” she said.There’s still only one cultivator in Missouri with product available, so supply is limited. Sullivan said they are almost out of marijuana right now and may have to close for a few days until they get more in. A reminder that buyers must have a medical marijuana card from a doctor to purchase marijuana at the dispensary.
