Maui Wellness Group, doing business as Maui Grown Therapies, announced Wednesday its first dispensary location in the Maui Lani Village Center at 44 Paa Street in Kahului.

The company, led by former Maui Land & Pineapple Co. CEO David Cole, expects to sell cannabis and related products about 112 days after it receives approval by the state Health Department to begin cultivation.

Its a plant that anyone can grow if no one steals it. You can start a seedling today and grow untill harvest time, and we would still be waiting for the wheel to be reinvented in hawaii so money can be made by democrats.
