Leaders in Bristol, Virginia have approved two special-exception permits to allow Dharma Pharmaceuticals to operate.
Dharma is one of five approves processors that are licensed to grow and process cannabis for medicinal products.
Two sites, the vacant Bristol Mall and a lot beside Wendy’s on Gate City Highway require these exception permits in order to operate since this is zoned as general business.
Dharma will decide which site will work best for its facility.
Dharma and four other processors in Virginia have conditional approval, and the state’s board of pharmacy is expected to issue permits once construction is finished.
