A medical marijuana company has begun steps to open a dispensary on the west side of Kent and will go before the city’s Planning Commission tonight seeking a site plan review and a conditional zoning certificate.
Buckeye Relief, is a level I medical marijuana cultivator and processor based in Eastlake. While its products can be found in dispensaries across the state, Caroline Henry, Buckeye Relief’s government affairs director, said the company is interesting in opening its own facility at 1181 W. Main St.
Henry said the spot is ideal because of its spacious building and ample parking. She said that clientele sometimes have a hard time finding parking around dispensaries and, because many of the people using dispensaries are disabled, more parking is always good.
