Liberty Health Sciences (CSE:LHS; OTCBB:LHSIF) announced it secured two new locations for medical cannabis dispensaries in Florida. These are scheduled to open in 2018.
As quoted in the press release:
The new dispensaries, located in St. Petersburg and Port St. Lucie, will be opened in addition to the two previously announced locations in The Villages and Fort Lauderdale. The dispensary operations and plans are being finalized and will be submitted to the Florida Department of Health, Office of Medical Marijuana Use for approval in accordance with state law.
The registered patient count in Florida continues to increase rapidly with approximately 51,000 patients registered with the State currently. This number is expected to continue to grow as more physicians recommend cannabis as a treatment option and as more Florida residents become educated on the benefits of medical cannabis to treat certain qualifying conditions.
