'The Dome' in Kent could become medical marijuana dispensary – Record-Courier

Kent — “The Dome” on Currie Hall Parkway in Kent may become a medical marijuana dispensary if Galenas, a medical marijuana production company, is awarded a license by the state to open a facility in that location.

Michael Scheeser, president of Galenas which would own Shire Dispensary, said there’s a chance the company may not receive permission to open facility in the lottery process. 

“These awards will probably be announced in the first quarter of 2022,” he said, adding the company is planning to apply for six to 10 dispensaries around the state in hopes of being awarded one.

At that time, the state of Ohio will license another 73 dispensary licenses, which would more than double the statewide total of medical marijuana dispensaries, according to Brady Ciancio, vice president of sales and Galenas’ director of operations.
