The 2nd medical marijuana dispensary could be set up in Coral Springs • Coral Springs Talk

A Budding Industry offers its second location in Coral Springs.
The municipal commission will vote on Wednesday if Trulieve, Inc. can open a medical marijuana dispensary with conditional use approval.
The new location would be at 10400 West Boulevard de l’Atlantique at Cypress Wood Plaza, located in the northeast building, according to city documents.
The city’s land use planning code requires conditional use approval for medical cannabis dispensaries in specific locations. Indeed, the site is not in a plaza with a large retail store, and authorities must ensure there are no negative impacts on surrounding properties, according to the city.
If approved, Trulieve would have to meet several conditions: a 24/7 security system and cameras, an adequately sized waiting room, an advanced burglar alarm system, a consultation area private, adequate exterior lighting and no exterior windows without access, and a deal with Coral Springs Police must enter their trespassing program, according to the city.
The facility will have several different security measures, including an electronic access control system on its doors. Patients should have uniformed staff escorting them up to the dispensary floor, two ID checks, and a doctor’s recommendation to purchase products.
The new Trulieve location will not be offering deliveries. If that changes, they must apply for another conditional use authorization. A traffic impact analysis was carried out and revealed that the impacts would be minimal.
The establishment will be open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Trulieve is Florida’s premier medical cannabis company with 80 locations across the state. Other locations in Broward County include Tamarac, Fort Lauderdale, and Deerfield Beach.
The new marijuana dispensary would be the second in Coral Springs. In 2020, Fluent became the first dispensary to open. This followed the vote by Floridians to legalize medical marijuana in 2016 and the lifting by city commissioners of a moratorium on dispensaries.
