Florida's Health Department approved Knox Medical to be the fourth organization in the state to distribute low-THC medical cannabis. The announcement came less than a month before the full legalization of medical marijuana in the state becomes effective.
Knox Medical Will Do In-Home Delivery Of Medical Marijuana
Knox Medical scored the highest out of all the nurseries that applied for permission to cultivate, process and dispense medical cannabis. As a result, they were approved to dispense medical pot, and is set to begin in-home deliveries next week.
Other organizations like Trulieve (Hackney Nursery in Gadsden County) and Alpha Surterra in the Tampa Bay area were approved for medical marijuana distribution in July, while Modern Health Concepts (Costa Nursery Farms in Miami-Dade County) was approved in early September. Two other organizations are waiting for approval.
Bruce Knox, co-founder and chief operating officer of Knox Medical, said: "Ever since Knox Medical was awarded the highest score in Florida to produce medical cannabis, our team of growers, engineers, researchers, and experts have prepared for this exact moment to produce industry leading medicines for patients and their families. We are honored to have this privilege to serve our fellow Floridians who require compassionate medical relief."
