Tiny Delaware Gets a Third Medical Marijuana Dispensary

The second-smallest state in the union will see the opening of a new medical marijuana dispensary today, with New York­–based Columbia Care opening a dispensary in Kent County, Delaware.
Columbia Care held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday at its Compassion Center in Smyrna, which celebrates its grand opening on Friday. The dispensary is the Columbia Care’s first shop in Delaware and makes the company the second medical marijuana operator in Delaware.

State Medical Marijuana Program Administrator Paul Hyland said Delaware will now have all three of its counties covered. First State Compassion Centers operates the other two dispensaries near Wilmington in New Castle County and near Lewes in Sussex County.

Columbia Care CEO Nicholas Vita says a significant unmet medical need in Kent County influenced the company’s decision to open a Smyrna location. He says the new facility will provide cured leaf products and dose-metered, pharmaceutical-quality offerings including oils and oral capsules.

In addition to its home state of New York, the company also operates dispensaries in Arizona, California, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, and Washington, DC.
