Dispensary plans to open in Klamath Falls

Klamath Falls, Ore. — Klamath Falls first medical marijuana dispensary is scheduled to open shortly…the owner offered a first look behind the scenes to KOBI.

Ed Medina, Jr. hopes to open his medical marijuana dispensary on Monday, April 7th…

“That gives us a week to receive our state license, and our testing results for our products.”

Once the dispensary opens, only card holders will be allowed into the sales area.

Medina notes the medical marijuana won’t be cheap…

“Our average expected retail prices is somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 dollars a gram.”

Medina expects to sell about 4 pounds a month.

He’s spent the past several weeks setting up shop, including a security system of cameras, motion sensors, and other measures…

“There’s 32 pages of regulations and security requirements that we had to meet.”

Not to mention getting his website up and running, and putting up signs.

Medina knows that the dispensary has already attracted a lot of attention – and that does have him concerned about the privacy of his patrons…

“Their privacy is extremely important to me. Everything we do is HIPPA compliant.”

Medina says he knows very well that if anything goes wrong, he could lose his license – but for now, he’s just looking forward to opening…

“This has been a long time coming.”

Medical marijuana dispensaries have been approved inside the Klamath Falls city limits.

It’s different for Klamath County, as the commissioners are considering a moratorium.
