With Marijuana legalization becoming a possibility in the United States, medical professionals – especially those actively involved in researching the benefits of the herb over human brain – are having a field day. Neurologist Dr. Hasan is one of them. The owner of marijuana business, Dr. Malik Hasan has finally secured a medical marijuana license for NuVue Pharma, the officials of Pueblo city confirmed the news.
Dr. Malik Hasan formed a new company, NuVue Pharma in 2015. It was constructed with intent to operate a greenhouse and medical pot dispensary. It is a cannabis production, cannabis oil extraction, and medical marijuana dispensary based out of Pueblo, Colorado. The City Council at that time also nodded to rezone the land into a business park.
In the recent development, the company received medical marijuana license to become the 3rd medical marijuana dispensary in the city. The dispensary is now operational as Dr. Hasan expected it to be.
In addition, Dr. Hasan had a city license prior to obtaining the medical marijuana license. Subsequently, the doctor had the luxury to grow recreational marijuana at NuVue. Moreover, he was also entitled to manufacture pot-infused products at the same location.
Statement of the President of NuVue Pharmacy
The President of NuVue Pharmacy John Kaweski stated:
“NuVue Pharma will be a ‘bio-tech’ firm doing research on marijuana in a state-of-the-art lab — as well as selling medical marijuana products to state-approved cardholders”
He further added:
“The company will mostly sell marijuana oil products because Dr. Hasan doesn’t believe in smoking”
John also hoped that medical marijuana will be legalized soon across the nation and NuVue Pharma will become a market leader. He said:
“A lot of companies are just focused on making money. However, we’re taking a more medical approach”
