Medbox to Consult on Second Marijuana Dispensary In the State of Washington
The new 502 recreational retail dispensary will be located in Mountlake Terrace, Washington, and is scheduled to be operational by mid-2016. The agreement follows an earlier engagement under which Medbox is providing similar services to the principals of the Fweedom Collective for the opening of a dispensary in Mt. Vernon, WA, which is scheduled to be operational in the first half of 2016.
As with the Mt. Vernon property, Medbox will provide both pre- and post-opening services, including advising on regulatory compliance, security, training, IT and associated matters. Under the exclusive supervision and control of the Fweedom owners, the Mountlake Terrace dispensary also is expected to sell the new miVape personal vaporizer, which is produced by Medbox’s Vaporfection subsidiary.
“It is gratifying to have been selected for a second time by the principals of Fweedom, attesting to the solid relationship we are building,” said Jeff Goh, President and interim Chief Executive Officer of Medbox. “Both organizations have the same values for adhering to the highest standards of quality and professionalism.”
“We are off to an excellent start on our initial project in Mt. Vernon, and look forward to continuing to work closely with Medbox as we expand in Washington state, where marijuana has been approved both for medical and recreational use,” added J. Tyler Godfrey, one of the principals of Fweedom.
