MIAMI (CBSMiami) – South Florida’s second medical marijuana dispensary is now in business.

Trulieve opened the doors Wednesday on a new facility in Northwest Miami-Dade, just east of Miami International Airport.

It’s the company’s first South Florida location, and fifth one in the state.

A different company has been growing marijuana in Southwest Miami-Dade for a few months.

Trulieve says it’s working on two more locations in Miami-Dade and several in Broward.

The dispensary has round-the-clock security.

Medical marijuana is legally available to patients with certain conditions, but it must be prescribed by a doctor who’s authorized by the state.

  1. Wow after 3 years 2 dispensaries open, Impressive. And the politician want to leave the implementation in the hands of the current licenses. Pay to play
