Medical Marijuana May Be Available in LA Dispensaries as Early as Next Week

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) – After a long wait, medical marijuana may finally be ready for Louisiana patients as early as next week.

Patients who live in the New Orleans metro area should be able to pick up medical marijuana recommendations from the H&W Drug Store if the product passes the final phase of testing — which could happen in as soon as seven business days.

H&W owner Ruston Henry said he’s anxious to get medical marijuana for his customers, but also appreciates the care that’s gone into its approval.

“What I’m excited about is the standardization of the product. So once you have a standardized product, then people say ‘Look, I take this much, this lets me achieve the therapeutic dose that I want,’” Henry said.
