Fayette County’s first medical marijuana dispensary is set to open Monday in Uniontown.

Maitri Medicinals renovated a former sporting goods building at 27 W. Main St. and nearby parking lot for the dispensary. The business employs 12 people from Fayette and Westmoreland counties.

The dispensary will be open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The company plans to open another dispensary this year in Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood.

The state in July approved Maitri (pronounced my-tree) Medicinals to transform a 50,000-square-foot facility in RIDC Park on O’Hara into a greenhouse and marijuana processing facility. The facility will likely produce the full range of medical marijuana products allowed under state law — dry leaf, salves, concentrates, tinctures, ointments and pills.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
