Almost two years after Missouri voters approved the use of medical marijuana, dispensaries in Osage Beach and Eldon are now open.
The first dispensary to open in the Lake of the Ozarks area was Latitude Dispensary. The store, located in Osage Beach, opened in June.
In Eldon, Heya Wellness opened last week. The business was approved by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services last year and was delayed from their targeted opening date of January 21 for various reasons. The Eldon location is one of five in the Heya Wellness chain of dispensaries which filed for organization in 2019. The other locations are in Kirksville, St. Charles, Park Hills, and St. Ann, all located in Missouri.
Heya Wellness is supplied by their own cultivation facility, Heya St. Ann Cultivation, in St. Ann. In addition, Heya Wellness operates three infused production facilities in the St. Louis area.
