Trulieve hit a milestone for the medical marijuana books with the opening of its 100th location in the state right where it all started — Tallahassee.
The company, the nation’s largest multi-state operator, dominates the exploding industry in Florida.
The new Tallahassee store is located at 1800 W. Tennessee Street, in the former Harvest House of Cannabis. Trulieve recently acquired the Arizona-based Harvest Health & Recreation cannabis concern in a $2.1 billion deal.
“Tallahassee is where we opened our first dispensary and where we’re proud to open our 100th in Florida,” said CEO Kim Rivers, in a statement.
“Trulieve was the first licensee in the state of Florida approved to cultivate medical marijuana, first in the state approved to dispense, and first to open a dispensary, right here in Tallahassee.”
Rivers said the capital harbored “important firsts” for Trulieve and “has always been and will continue to be central to the Trulieve success story.”
According to the company, in 2015, Trulieve was among the first five Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers (MMTCs) in Florida to receive a license to cultivate.
Trulieve was the first to get the greenlight for growing cannabis plants and receive approval to begin producing and selling in the state.
In 2016, Trulieve opened the state’s first medical marijuana dispensary at 800 Capital Circle S.E. in
