(Globe Newswire) Chicago and Vancouver — RISE Dispensaries, a rapidly growing cannabis retail chain owned by Green Thumb Industries Inc., today announced that RISE Dispensary Fruitland Park, the company’s eighth retail location in Florida and 85 nationwide, will open on August 16.
The new dispensary will host a grand opening event on August 25, where profits from the day will be donated to Minorities for Medical Marijuana. The grand opening will include a ribbon cutting ceremony at 8:00 a.m. ET with representatives from the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
“We are excited to open our eighth medical dispensary in the Sunshine state, and introduce our high-quality, premium cannabis products to patients in the Fruitland Park and Lake County community. We look forward to welcoming more cannabis patients to the RISE experience while supporting Minorities for Medical Marijuana, an Orlando-based nonprofit organization that aspires to build a more equitable cannabis industry.” — Anthony Georgiadis, president, Green Thumb
Minorities for Medical Marijuana (M4MM) is a purpose-driven nonprofit organization that provides members of the cannabis community with the information, referrals, advocacy, coordination and education needed to build a more equitable industry. In addition to the RISE Fruitland Park grand opening donation, M4MM also serves as the recipient of RISE Dispensaries’ Round Up Program across Florida, where patients have the option to round up to the nearest dollar when making an in-store purchase in support of the organization.
“RISE’s commitment to supporting M4MM’s `Project Clean Slate,’ our social justice program that provides expungement and wrap-around services for those affected by past marijuana possession charges, is a prime example of impact investing. By embracing and supporting social justice programming, RISE is helping us further our mission of empowering marginalized voices and nurturing a more inclusive and equitable world.” — Roz McCarthy, founder and CEO, Minorities for Medical Marijuana

In addition to RISE Dispensary Fruitland Park, the Company currently owns and operates medical cannabis retail stores in Bonita Springs, Deerfield Beach, Hallandale Beach, Kendall, Oviedo, Pinellas Park and West Palm Beach, with delivery services available at each location.
