Construction Of Beaver County’s First Medical Marijuana Dispensary Is Finally Set To Begin

A medical marijuana dispensary planned in Aliquippa has delayed its opening again and is now predicting a late February or March kickoff.

Sometimes, an idea just doesn’t even pass a basic smell test. Good luck — at least until someone hands out free samples at the back door or takes his work home with him.

Kind of makes you wonder how many elected officials own shares of Holistic Industries, doesn’t it?

Funny…based on some of this weeks’ elections, I would’ve thought that it was open!

A cross between a high end health spa and an Apple store….In Aliquippa. Yeah, that’s gonna work out. Let’s just see how long it takes before the “on-site security” is involved in the first shooting. What concessions did Dwan give away in order to build this little misplaced facility? Let’s face it, nobody in their right mind would voluntarily build a nice retail establishment in that location simply because of their philanthropic belief of wantIng to help distressed neighborhoods.

Had anybody explained to the proprietor yet that the Aliquippa PD’s cut is 25% right off the top and officers who shop while in uniform don’t have to pay (kind of like how they get free coffee at the donut places)? Let me guess, phase two will be their legalized ‘shooting gallery lounge’ complete with no cost needle exchanges and paramedics on site armed and ready with Narcan for those occasional whoops’s.

I have no problem whatsoever with legalized medical cannabis and actually fully support it. This particular facility though just stands out as something that will end up being the perfect example that those against the idea will be using to support their argument in the not too distant future.
