Sometime later this summer, Super Bowl XXXIV champion Grant Wistrom will start working part-time in Springfield as a budtender, said Revival 98 dispensary general manager Jason Bach.
“Grant is very excited about the project,” Bach told the News-Leader Thursday morning. “He wants to be here two or three days a week working with me … He’s going to be a hands-on owner.”
A Joplin native, Wistrom played for the St. Louis Rams and the Seattle Seahawks in the late ’90s and 2000s, getting his start with the Cardinals football team at Webb City High School, according to News-Leader archives.
Bach said that Revival 98 will be entering the cannabis business at a time when the state’s cultivation and manufacturing systems will allow for more steady supplies than last fall, when lawful medical marijuana sales first began at a handful of Missouri dispensaries. (More than 100 out of roughly 192 dispensaries allowed by the state constitution are now certified to operate, according to state records dated May 21.)
What products will the dispensary carr?
Revival 98 doesn’t expect to be stuck with the challenges many dispensaries faced in those early months: long lines with wait times of 90 minutes
