Prime Minister Gaston Browne yesterday visited the country’s first licensed cannabis dispensary – Grow Antigua and Barbuda Medicinal Dispensary and Retail Store – which is located at Redcliffe Quay.
History was made when the cannabis dispensary, retail store and smoke shop opened on 15th August.
The store sells a variety of cannabis related paraphernalia and growing supplies.
Presently, applications are being accepted for Grow’s Member Waiting List which allows customers to apply for a medical cannabis user licence.
So far, over 200 people have signed up.
Minister Browne said he wished to see first-hand the operations of the dis- pensary, to hear of the challenges the operators may be facing and get their feedback on how the government may be able to re- solve some of these issues.
The prime minister said he was “quite impressed” with what he saw during his visit.
