MINNEAPOLIS – Six months into Minnesota’s medical cannabis program, Minnesota Medical Solutions, a Minneapolis-based producer of medical cannabis, shared successes and struggles in the program’s launch.
Dr. Laura Bultman, MinnMed Chief Medical Officer, called it slow and steady progress, citing the company would expand two dispensaries in 2016, one in Moorhead, another in Twin Cities suburbs.
She said MinnMed would also focus on more outreach and education to address the stigma of the program and to boost sluggish enrollment.
“The biggest lesson we have learned is being responsive and listening to patients,” said Dr. Bultman. “The biggest success is working in tight timelines and working with wide variety of medications. We’ve seen hundreds of patients having success and that is what it is all about.”
