The Miami Valley’s first medical marijuana dispensary held its grand opening Thursday. Mad River Remedies in Riverside offers 20 types of medical marijuana to registered patients with one of 21 state-approved medical conditions.
Riverside Mayor Bill Flaute was on hand for the ribbon cutting. He dismissed concerns about people abusing medial marijuana.
“It’s not about abuse,” Flaute says. “It’s about using it correctly and making people feel better when they’re in a lot of pain.”
