Medical marijuana dispensary opening in Uniontown
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.
