MedMen Continues Florida Expansion With Three New Store Openings

LOS ANGELES — MedMen Enterprises announced the opening of three new locations in the state of Florida: St. Petersburg, Key West and Pensacola. The Company now has four operational stores in Florida, with eight additional store openings in the state planned for the remainder of the calendar year. The Company is licensed for 35 retail locations in the state.

“We look forward to getting to know our neighbors in St. Petersburg, Key West and Pensacola and are thrilled to offer MedMen’s unparalleled quality in product and experience to these communities.”

Florida is the third most populous state in the U.S. with a robust medical cannabis program serving over 260,000 qualified patients as of August 30, 2019. In June, MedMen opened a location in West Palm Beach, its first in the state, where it has seen over 6,000 visits to date. “MedMen is proud to expand its retail footprint in Florida,” said Adam Bierman, MedMen Co-Founder and CEO. “We look forward to getting to know our neighbors in St. Petersburg, Key West and Pensacola and are thrilled to offer MedMen’s unparalleled quality in product and experience to these communities.”

MedMen St. Petersburg is the Company’s first location in the fifth largest city in the state, which is home to over 260,000 residents. St. Petersburg is also part of a three-million-person metropolitan area, the second largest in Florida. The Company has actively engaged the local community, including working closely with the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce and Epilepsy Florida, the principal agency overseeing epilepsy programs and services for over 400,000 Floridians.

MedMen Key West is located on one of the highest-traffic streets on the island, Duval Street, which includes several eateries, shops and entertainment destinations. Key West is a top tourist destination with over two million visitors annually and a popular cruise ship hub. The Company has been actively engaged in the local community as a member of the Key West Chamber including participating in beach clean-ups with the for-profit ocean cleanup and advocacy organization, 4Ocean, supporting Nancy’s Forrester’s Secret Garden, a community parrot and plant life sanctuary by planting new plants in the neighborhood and promoting the arts with Tropic Cinema, a vintage, non-profit movie theater.

MedMen Pensacola is located within one of the busiest retail zones within the city and represents the Company’s first location in the Florida Panhandle. Pensacola is the state’s westernmost city and within proximity to the state of Alabama. The Company has actively engaged with the local community as a member of the Pensacola Chambers.

MedMen Buds, the Company’s new loyalty program will be available to all patients at these locations. In addition, MedMen’s recently launched same-day delivery platform, which currently services California and Nevada, will be available to Florida patients next week. Together with loyalty and delivery, the Company’s new store locations align with MedMen’s national retail strategy of providing an industry-leading omni-channel experience to all consumers.

In addition to expanding its retail footprint, MedMen remains one of the lead supporters of the recently launched constitutional amendment campaign to bring safe, regulated, and legal cannabis for adults 21 years and older in the state of Florida. The campaign committee “Make it Legal Florida” is chaired by MedMen’s own director of government affairs, Nick Hansen.

Founded in 2010, MedMen is North America’s premium cannabis retailer. Founders Adam Bierman and Andrew Modlin have defined the next generation discovery platform for cannabis and all its benefits. A robust selection of high-quality products, including MedMen-owned brands [statemade], LuxLyte and MedMen Red, coupled with a team of cannabis-educated associates cement the Company’s commitment to providing an unparalleled experience. MedMen’s industry-leading technology enables a fully compliant, owned-and-operated delivery service and MedMen Buds, a nationwide loyalty program. MedMen believes that a world where cannabis is legal and regulated is safer, healthier and happier.

Another LGBTQ+ Nightlife Destination Has Fallen Victim to the Pandemic

WEST HOLLYWOOD (L.A. Magazine) — Rage nightclub has been a destination for LGBTQ+ nightlife in the bustling Santa Monica Boulevard corridor of West Hollywood for decades. Now, nearly 40 years after first opening its doors, the club has announced it has permanently closed, yet another local business to collapse amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rage nightclub management lays some portion of the blame on their landlord, Monte Overstreet. The club’s now-former general manager, Ron Madrill, told Q Voice News that rent for the location was already “very high” prior to operations shutting down in March. He says he believes an impasse over rent payments may have contributed to Rage’s closure.

Overstreet also reportedly owns the space formerly occupied by neighboring bar Flaming Saddles Saloon, which also announced […]

Workers protest outside Ralphs in Hollywood where 21 have tested positive for coronavirus

HOLLYWOOD (KTLA) — Workers rallied Friday outside a Ralphs store in Hollywood where 21 people have tested positive for the coronavirus.

The group called on the store to take more aggressive action when staff test positive for the virus, and to ramp up efforts to protect the grocery store employees, who are considered essential workers on the front lines of the pandemic.

They said they speak for thousands of workers who are afraid they aren’t getting enough protection as the virus continues to spread countywide, infecting more than 24,000 as of Friday.

The Ralphs at 7257 W. Sunset Blvd. has had an outbreak involving several workers who tested positive for the virus, according to the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, which lists businesses and […]

‘Stay Put, Order In’ and Dine With Friends on Zoom, Says Mayor

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — WeHo is home to some of the best restaurants in the world and our community members are used to gathering around restaurant tables and enjoying meals together. Now, there’s an opportunity to, instead, gather around kitchen tables at home and enjoy a meal (or many!) while supporting our local restaurants.

“One of the worst things about the Safer At Home directive is being disconnected from friends, neighbors, and the city around us,” said City of West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “Don’t be alone if you don’t have to be – take advantage of the technology out there and invite a friend to Zoom in for Ziti or share some Farfalle over FaceTime.”

Mealtime is a wonderful opportunity to connect with friends, family, and loved ones using virtual teleconferencing technology, while partaking in your favorite delivered or takeout food.

City Encourages Residents to Support Local Restaurants During Safer At Home Orders

Many West Hollywood restaurants remain open and are offering takeout, curbside, and delivery meals, which are sensitive to social distancing during the emergency. The City of West Hollywood and the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to offer a directory of “Stay Put, Order In” eateries in West Hollywood, which is accessible by visitingwww.weho.org/coronavirus (click the “Stay Put, Order In” link!) or www.wehochamber.com/dinein. This list is updated daily.

“We need to start hanging out together, and talking, and seeing each other again. So, why not plan to #WeHoDinnerConnect this week – maybe Saturday at 8 p.m.? Or Sunday at 7 p.m.? Or even just 15 minutes of screen-to-screen gossip,” said Mayor D’Amico. “And you don’t have to cook a thing… local restaurants have meals and menus tailored to take-away choices and they’re ready to send food over to your house or make arrangements for you to pick it up.”

If picking up food, remember to wear face coverings, which are required to enter essential businesses.
