Medical marijuana store opens in Bradenton to standing-room-only crowd

Medical marijuana store opens in Bradenton to standing-room-only crowd

BRADENTON — A line of a few people prior to Trulieve’s downtown Bradenton medical marijuana store opening on Tuesday swelled quickly as dozens of patients filled to capacity the newly remodeled building at 1103 14th St. W.

The Polk County resident drove to Bradenton because it was a shorter distance to where he normally get his medicine and to take advantage of Trulieve’s opening day offer of 25 percent off prices. “It helps a lot,” Couvertier said. “We voted for this to get away from the opioids that are prescribed by doctors and the (Department of Veterans Affairs). There were no alternatives before now and now we have alternatives we know work for us.”
