Biden should decriminalize marijuana on the federal level: Dr Jeffrey Singer

Cato Institute senior fellow Dr. Jeffrey Singer weighs in on President Biden’s decision to pardon all prior federal offenses of simple marijuana possession on ‘Kennedy.’ 

Convenience store chain and gas station operator Circle K is teaming up with leading national cannabis consumer packaged goods company Green Thumb Industries to sell medical marijuana at various Florida gas stations.

Sales of the products will start at approximately 10 locations next year, where Green Thumb – which owns Rise Dispensaries – plans to launch "RISE Express" branded dispensaries adjacent to Circle K stores.

Through the agreement, Green Thumb can lease space from Circle K. 

The stores will offer a selection of cannabis products, including flower, pre-rolls, gummies and vapes.

The products will come from Green Thumb's new 28-acre cultivation facility in Ocala. It also has a cultivation facility in Homestead.

"The new RISE Express model is a huge step forward in making it easier and more efficient for patients to purchase high-quality cannabis as part of their everyday routine when stopping by their local convenience store," Green Thumb CEO Ben Kovler said in a statement.

Green Thumb entered the market in 2018 and operates medical cannabis retail stores in Bonita Springs, Deerfield Beach, Hallandale Beach, Kendall, Oviedo, Pinellas Park and West Palm Beach.
