Old Route 66 Wellness, the first medical marijuana dispensary in the Springfield area to receive its operating paperwork from Missouri health authorities, said Friday night that it plans to open in early November.
Monday, Nov. 2, will be “special VIP day,” said two company principals on a YouTube video released about 6:30 p.m. on Friday. The company has set up a VIP program through social media for interested patients.
The following day — Election Day — the dispensary will open to any member of the public with a lawful Missouri medical marijuana patient card.
“This is fantastic news for the Springfield area,” said Cindy Northcutt, a cannabis attorney and industry consultant based in Springfield. “I have had the great pleasure of working with the team at Old Route 66 dispensary — they are wonderful and I know they’ll provide excellent patient education and customer service to southwest Missouri patients.”
Missouri’s first legal dispensaries opened last weekend in suburban St. Louis.
Missouri voters adopted a medical marijuana constitutional amendment in 2018.
To make a purchase at the dispensary, patients must hold a qualifying medical marijuana card issued by Missouri health authorities.
