First medical marijuana dispensary outside Twin Cities opens in Rochester

The state’s first medical marijuana dispensary outside the Twin Cities will open Thursday in Rochester.

Minnesota Medical Solutions will open the new clinic in the northern part of the city. CEO Dr. Kyle Kingsley said it made sense to open the company’s second facility in Rochester due to the presence of the Mayo Clinic.

“It’s a medical city,” Kingsley said. “We think it’s the best choice to give the most people the most access.”

Minnesota Medical Solutions is one of two companies allowed to manufacture medical marijuana under the state law passed last year. The state’s law is the among the strictest in the nation. It does not allow medical marijuana to be smoked. Instead, the drug comes in pill, tincture or oil forms.
