Features Florida’s First Medical Marijuana Drive-Thru
Palm Harbor, Florida – June 19, 2018 – As Curaleaf continues to deliver on its mission to provide access for Florida’s patients to premium quality and reliable medical marijuana products in a safe, compassionate and knowledgeable environment, the company today announced the opening of its newest dispensary in Palm Harbor, offering Florida’s first medical marijuana drive-thru along with same- day or next-day delivery service in northern Pinellas county and into the following nearby counties: Pasco, Hernando, Citrus, Levy, Marion, Sumter, and Hillsborough.
Current Curaleaf patients will have the option to place their medical marijuana order online for pick-up at the Palm Harbor dispensary’s secure drive-thru. Curaleaf will verify that all patients are listed in the state’s Medical Marijuana Use Registry and have active orders in the system. All new patients are required to first visit with Curaleaf associates at the dispensary’s private consultation rooms and are encouraged to take advantage of educational resources and events in the dispensary’s community meeting room.
“We, at Curaleaf, are proud to bring to the Palm Harbor community its first state-of-the-art medical marijuana dispensary, underscoring our commitment to making this life-changing treatment available and accessible to all, so that suffering patients can find the relief they need,” said Lindsay Jones, President of Curaleaf Florida. “We want the communities we serve to know that as Curaleaf expands its footprint across Florida and its product line, our company remains focused on safety, exceptional quality, accessibility and superior customer service. As such, we are piloting the drive-thru concept in Palm Harbor to provide our patients, several of which have physical disabilities, with another option for access and convenience.”
