First Medical Marijuana Dispensary to Open in Bowling Green!
Updated: Dec 7, 2022
We are approaching crunch time for many unopened Ohio marijuana dispensaries as the State set hard limits of August 9th and September 8th as the latest date that a number of dispensaries have been allowed to pass final inspection.
While Bowling Green's dispensary was not one of these dispensaries - as the Soothe team was proactive in their preparation - it has not been the easiest road to opening for Soothe. Back in 2016, it was reported that the Bowling Green City Council was considering a temporary moratorium on medical marijuana entities within city limits. The resolution would have prohibited medical marijuana companies from operating or even planning operations for one year while the city created regulations.
Thankfully, the Bowling Green City Council ultimately rejected the moratorium and allowed cannabis businesses to proceed in Bowling Green without further obstacles. Councilman Bruce Jeffers, who voted to reject the moratorium, told WTOL:
"...the majority on council was not interested in stopping people from using it for medical reasons and [we] did not want to add a layer of regulation on something that is already highly regulated."
First reported by the Sentinel-Tribune, Soothe dispensary has stated that they plan to open Bowling Green's first medical marijuana dispensary by the end of the week! Soothe dispensary is owned by Glass City Alternatives, and will be located at 1155 N. Main Street in the former Glass City Credit Union. Soothe Dispensary will be the sole dispensary serving Wood, Hancock, and Henry counties.
According to BG Independent News, Soothe dispensary passed their final inspection early in the month of July, and are now waiting on the State's official announcement of licensure and subsequently product to be stocked.
Once Soothe receives its certificate of operation from the Ohio Board of Pharmacy, the hours of operation will be 10am-6pm Mondays through Fridays and 10am-3pm on Saturdays. Soothe will be closed on Sundays.
