Our view: Medical marijuana dispensary opening best read October story


Hello everyone,

As noted earlier in this space a story on marijuana giant Columbia Care opening a medical weed dispensary on Concord Pike in north Wilmington was the top post in October by a wide margin.

A later story on the opening of a Columbia Care medical marijuana store in the Tanger Outlets near Rehoboth Beach did not get anywhere near the traffic. Coastal Sussex has a second medical weed store, not that far away in the Lewes area.

The medical marijuana story was one of the reasons for the Delaware Business Now website had another record month.

The north Wilmington story, which for some reason was not picked by other media outlets, was the top post ever in the nearly seven-year history of the Delaware Business Now website.

The third most visited storywas on Iron Hill opting to construct a production brewery in Exton, PA. Delaware was out of the running, due to an arbitrary limit of three breweries owned by one entity.
