US (MO): 'It's more important to do it right' city of St Joseph's first MMJ facility to open

It’s been a two-year process for Vertical Enterprise to officially become the first medical cannabis manufacturer and cultivator in St. Joseph.

Last week was somewhat of a culmination as the company’s dispensary on 908 North Belt Highway was unveiled to only a select group with an official opening on July 24.

From constructing a 64,000 square foot manufacturing and cultivation facility to having to wait slightly longer than they wanted to open their dispensary location, CEO and President Chris McHugh says he feels privileged to work in this industry.

“I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” said McHugh. “Two years really isn’t that long in the grand scheme of things. There have been people who have been toiling in this industry for 10 years. For me to come in and in two short years really, to be allowed to do this, I just feel lucky.”
