"We could offer other services," Fox said. "Services such as yoga services, education services as well as massage therapy."

Pied Pfeifer Compassionate Care Clinic employees say the dispensary would be beneficial for the patients they serve.

"We have 462 patients that need medical cannabis," office manager Stephanie Dalton said. "It's just a rejoice of our patients actually being able to have their medicine."

"Giving them their cards, and the dispensaries opening, like the one down the road, we know that our patients will have access to the medicine," Dalton said.
