A former auto body shop may soon get a new life as Delaware County’s first medical marijuana dispensary. Matt Darin, chief operating officer of Grassroots, a Highland Park, Ill., company, gave a presentation at council’s January meeting, explaining that clients who would come to the dispensary would have to be a patient with a medical marijuana prescription from a physician in order to purchase its product.
The building the company has its eye on for purchase is at 409 Baltimore Pike, near a kidney dialysis center and Kohl’s.
“It is for medical marijuana only,” said attorney Ted Flowers, who accompanied Darin to the meeting. “It is not a recreational marijuana facility.”
