Anyone in Collier County with a prescription for medical marijuana will need to either get it filled by mail or drive to Lee County for their medication.
Commissioner Rick Locastro told WINK News, the board is not behind the medical dispensaries coming to the county. Rather than discuss changing land codes to allow them, they came to an agreement by voting unanimously to ban them.

Patients can get medically certified at Garulay’s company, My Florida Green.
