BROOKHAVEN, Mississippi (WLBT) — It was a day many in Mississippi thought would never come, but it did: the first medical marijuana products were purchased in the state on Wednesday.
The sale took place in Brookhaven at The Cannabis Company.
The shipment arrived around 1 p.m., but before the sale there was a slight problem in the system.
According to Melvin Robinson, executive director of the Mississippi Cannabis Trade Association, the system the state uses to process sales from medical marijuana stores had issues with the point of sale earlier Wednesday.
However, after a two and a half hour delay, the first product was purchased from the Brookhaven store.
