As part of an emerging industry in Missouri, the first medical marijuana dispensary in Farmington has opened and is serving customers in and around the Parkland.
Formerly Medicap Pharmacy, the Freund family has opened The Valley to serve local medical needs for those in pain or other medical issues that cannot be addressed by other medications.
Dan Freund had the Medicap Pharmacy in the same location for 24 years and is still a registered pharmacist.
He and his son Alex talked about the new business and what is involved in operating a medical marijuana dispensary.
“We applied for a dispensary license after the November 2018 election,” Dan said. “We were successful in obtaining the license. We have been working on it since March of 2019. We opened the first week of February.”
Alex said they had a soft opening the first week of February and plan to have a grand opening soon. He notes that their inventory is still limited.
