The city of Orlando opened its first licensed medical marijuana dispensary Friday.
Knox Medical Marijuana Dispensary (based in Winter Garden) is located at 1902 North Orange Avenue in Ivanhoe Village and sells low-THC cannabis. But patients won't find buds to smoke or edibles; the dispensary will sell THC in only vape cartridges and oil.
For about $45, the patient can get 300 milligrams of THC; 600 milligrams will cost about $90.
Nearly 800 doctors can write prescriptions for medical cannabis throughout the state, with nearly 100 of those doctors being located in Orange County.
It's expected the city will eventually approve six other dispensaries.
