$MEDH On his visit to Oklahoma to evaluate potential partners and medical marijuana dispensaries, Enriquez recognized opportunity for MedX's business model. The state is home to 70 casinos, nearly 2,000 dispensaries and almost 6,000 grow operations. Last year, medical marijuana sales in Oklahoma doubled vs the prior year to more than $831 million. MedX's vision is to take advantage of consumer demand and the state's flourishing cannabis market by teaming up with casinos and/or dispensaries to build its lounges and offer consumers a new experience.
"I think Oklahoma is doing something awesome," he said in the interview, noting how the state's program allows out of state patients or customers to obtain one-day or one-month passes to visit the dispensaries. "It's a very low-cost barrier to entry, which I think is very good for competition, which gives minorities and entrepreneurs the ability to get involved in the market."
