Palm Beach County is home to just two marijuana dispensaries for now, but cannabis companies have signed deals for at least three more locations in the county.
And perhaps two dozen pot shops could open for business in the county in the coming years.
“There’s going to be a flurry of activity,” said commercial real estate broker Chris Fleming of Strategic Realty Services.
Fleming has negotiated two leases for Trulieve, which has created the most extensive retail network among Florida’s 13 state-approved pot producers. One of Trulieve’s locations is on Woolbright Road near Interstate 95 in Boynton Beach, the other is on Military Trail in central Palm Beach County.
Another cannabis company, Grow Healthy, says it will open a dispensary at an undisclosed location in unincorporated Palm Beach County sometime during the third quarter of 2018. And Liberty Health Sciences also is scouting spots in Palm Beach County, Chief Executive George Scorsis said.
The typical dispensary takes just 2,000 to 3,000 square feet, so pot shops aren’t snapping up huge swaths of space.
