Pot Dispensary Getting Ready to Open in Mount Vernon – Virginia Connection Newspapers

Sandwiched between two car dealers in the northern part of Mount Vernon, the area’s first cannabis distribution center is shaping up before their July 1 opening date for those with a medical directive.

The new center is named the “Beyond Hello Cannabis Dispensary,” is plastered with signs and features a newly paved parking lot, black paint, renovations inside to look like a doctor’s office, and a big question mark for many. 

According to the Virginia Department of Health, “to obtain cannabis for medical purposes, a patient must have both (a) an unexpired written certification issued from a board-registered practitioner and (b) a current active patient registration issued by the Board of Pharmacy. As of July 1, 2022, patients will no longer be required to have an active patient registration issued by the Board of Pharmacy. However, if you wish to obtain a physical medical cannabis card, you will need to complete an application with the Virginia Board of Pharmacy.

Customers have to be 18 to get inside.
