A Colorado cannabis company will open three dispensaries in a Florida county that had previously tried to avoid approving its application by issuing a temporary moratorium on marijuana businesses.
The Green Solution plans to add three medical marijuana dispensaries to its fold in Osceola County, Orlando Business Journal first reported. The county’s seat of Kissimmee is located 18 miles south of Orlando, and the 1,500-square-mile county has a population north of 330,000.
Three medical marijuana dispensary certificates were issued on Feb. 19 to The Green Solution, Osceola County announced Feb. 20. Following that action, county commissioners enacted a ban on any new marijuana facilities.
The company, which has 15 dispensaries in Colorado, had previously applied for three dispensary certificates in Osceola County pursuant to 2017 rules, The Green Solution National President Trent Woloveck told The Cannabist. They received the required county staff recommendation for the certificates in June 2017.
