One of Louisiana's 1st medical marijuana pharmacies plans to open in Metairie (NOLA suburb)


One of the state's first marijuana pharmacies is looking to open in Metairie nearly two years after Louisiana lawmakers authorized the use of medical marijuana for certain conditions.

The Rx Greenhouse last month got preliminary approval from the state Pharmacy Board and plans to be operational by Sept. 1, according to CEO Dr. Sajal Roy, who is also a pharmacist.

The Rx Greenhouse was chosen from among eight applicants for the pharmacy permit to dispense marijuana in the metro New Orleans area. The Pharmacy Board plans to issue permits for pharmacies in each of the state's nine designated health care regions.


The medical conditions that marijuana has been approved as a treatment for in Louisiana include:

Muscular dystrophy
Multiple sclerosis
Cachexia/wasting syndrome
Crohn's disease
