In a news release issued this morning, the Liberty Health Sciences company announced they were opening a medical marijuana center in The Villages. The release also announced plans to open a similar operation in Ft. Myers, St. Petersburg, Fort Lauderdale and Port St. Lucie, later this year.

Liberty Health Sciences Inc. (CSE: LHS) (OTCQX: LHSIF) announced today that it has opened its inaugural medical cannabis dispensary in Florida, strategically located in The Villages, the state’s largest retirement community.  The Company also announced plans for a fifth Florida location in Fort Myers to open in early 2018, joining previously announced dispensaries opening in the first half of this year in Fort Lauderdale, St. Petersburg and Port. St. Lucie.

“It is with much anticipation that Liberty opens the Cannabis Education Center in The Villages, our first of many planned medical cannabis dispensaries in the State of Florida.  Since day one, we have had an unwavering commitment to serving Floridians in need and this marks a very exciting next step in that journey,” said George Scorsis, Director and CEO of Liberty Health Sciences. “In addition to offering access to high quality, safe and pure medical cannabis, the Cannabis Education Center will provide exceptional patient care through its comprehensive educational platform which includes tools, resources and compassionate one-on-one consultations geared towards educating patients on cannabis use as a safe alternative to treat their symptoms.”

Liberty is also pleased to announce that its fifth Florida Cannabis Education Center will be strategically located in Fort Myers. With approximately 63,900 medical cannabis patients registered with the state, Liberty dispensary locations in Florida are chosen based on the needs of the local patient population and the number of prescribing physicians in the vicinity. “The Cannabis Education Center will be centrally located within the city to best serve the needs of the Fort Myers community,” Scorsis said.  “When it opens early this year, we will be able to offer even more Floridians convenient and affordable access to high-quality medical cannabis when and where they need it the most.”

All Liberty locations in Florida will offer a wide variety of products and brands such as Aphria and Mary’s Medicinals, providing patients in need with a variety of options to meet their needs across all state-approved methods of cannabis consumption including vapes, oils, tinctures and capsules.

Liberty’s dispensary operations and plans are subject to final approval from the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use.
