Prineville now has a new business that caters to those having a Medical Marijuana card.  The business that opened  August 24th is called "5C - The Crook County Compassion Clinic/Club."

 

Co-Owner Ryan Cole says they have very strict federal and state guidelines that they follow.  "We are a safe access point for medicine for medical card owners. We do not sell it; it's all upon donations. We reimburse the growers. We’re basically a place that; it's a community of different card holders altogether that are working to insure that there is safety and privacy."

 

Cole says he's gotten a warm welcome from the Prineville businesses near the shop.

 

He says patients need a safe place to get their marijuana legally.  "After doing a lot of research, we found that what they were doing was going to the local parks where the children were handling the marijuana and distributing it and we wanted to provide a place that didn't target children."

 

He says the store is more like an actual clinic- and the marijuana is not on display or accessible to anyone; that legitimate cardholders must meet specific requirements before they are allowed into the area where the medicine is kept.

 

He adds that he had operated out of a home for about two years prior - and he and his partner, Robert Mills decided that a downtown Prineville location would make things easier for card-holders.
