The Rx Greenhouse got preliminary approval last month
One of the state’s first marijuana pharmacies is looking to open in Metairie nearly two years after Louisiana lawmakers authorized the use of medical marijuana for certain conditions.
The Rx Greenhouse last month got preliminary approval from the state Pharmacy Board and plans to be operational by Sept. 1, according to CEO Dr. Sajal Roy, who is also a pharmacist.
The Rx Greenhouse was chosen from among eight applicants for the pharmacy permit to dispense marijuana in the metro New Orleans area. The Pharmacy Board plans to issue permits for pharmacies in each of the state’s nine designated health care regions.
Roy said he is “confident” state lawmakers and the Pharmacy Board will give the location final approval.
“We’re just excited to get started,” he said.
