Apr. 20—Shango, a cannabis brand with locations along the East Coast, has received the green light from the state of Missouri to move forward with opening its newest location.
Shango Joplin opens its doors to the public at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at 2401 E. 32nd St. Products available on opening day include pre-rolls, edibles and carts.
There are now 120 medical cannabis businesses approved to do business in Missouri, where patient enrollment approaches six figures and cumulative sales are just shy of $30 million, according to the Missouri Medical Cannabis Trade Association, an industry trade group. Shango is one of the first medical marijuana dispensaries to open in the Joplin area, following the recent launches of Missouri Made Marijuana on Range Line Road and other dispensaries in Neosho and Cassville.
“It’s nice to be one of the few that’s open,” said Matt Warne, dispensary general manager. “It’s exciting, and we want to have patients in here to help them out. We’ve been in the industry for a significant amount of time, so we think that experience only helps us in serving our patients the best we can.”
Through the first week of opening, store hours will be from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday
