STRUTHERS, Ohio – Mahoning County’s second medical marijuana dispensary is set to open next month, as patient demand continues to stay strong throughout the area, one of the owners said Monday.
Green Leaf Therapy will host an open house April 5 at its offices at 93 S. Bridge St., said co-owner Vicki Groner. Groner owns the dispensary with her son, Cory Groner, and plans to officially open for business April 10, she said.
“My son, Cory, actually brought it to us and said it was a great business opportunity,” Groner said. “There aren’t enough dispensaries, and they need relief.”
Renovations are underway at the Bridge Street location, and Groner projects business is likely to be strong. “We have really good projections. We think we’ll do very well.”
Groner noted that the Struthers location is proximate to Campbell, Youngstown, Lowellville and Poland, so it has the potential to draw from all of these areas plus other communities within a 10-mile radius.
Green Leaf would become the second licensed operating dispensary in Mahoning County and the fourth dispensary between Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties, according to records from the state of Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Control Program’s website.
