I have been to multiple dispensaries throughout the quest of getting medication for my extreme nerve pain. There are a few things about this particular dispensary that should not operate the way they do:
-They aren’t federally compliant for patient security. All the talks with your pharmacist happens in a wide, open space with everyone else in the room being able to look at you, walk up to your conversation, and listen to your medical issues. That isn’t HIPPA compliant.
-Most people only give this place 5 stars because you can buy THC products here; they have good deals and prices and offer raffles for patients. It’s fun, but at the same time I see the people working there giving illegal advice to patients and willingly letting patients sell products they purchase from this store specifically in the parking lot. It’s super sketchy, creepy and illegal. I’ve seen at least 2 transactions happen in the parking lot at this dispensary. I’ve only ever been here 3 times.
-Liberty is, indeed, the only dispensary open on sundays. That leads to lots of long waits and overcrowding.
-The waiting room is a concrete box with a single bench that can fit 2 people that don’t mind touching a little bit. Patients with pain or bad legs are left to stand for sometimes an hour at a time because their couches and all comfort items are stashed in the dispensing area. It’s awful to sit in a concrete room and not be able to ease your weight off of your legs.
-Lots of bad advice from employees, selling bunk concentrate rigs that can shatter easily and hurt customers, and generally all of their problems that get brought up get ignored because most people than come here are customers instead of patients.
I’d probably never come back to this place until they’re actually following the law. I don’t want my medical information spread around, I don’t like them breaking HIPPA laws and claiming they don’t need to follow it but they totally do to be medically compliant.
I will probably try to reach out to the department of health to tell them these issues too. Would not recommend to ANYONE until they’re following the law.
