Gallon o’ gas. Couple scratch offs. A six-pack of…joints?
If you’re in Florida, weed sales could be coming to a Circle K near you, as the gas station chain has just signed a deal with Green Thumb Industries, a major cannabis company, to start selling pot in its 600 Sunshine State locations. The convenience store company said it till…er…”roll out” weed sales in just 10 locations to start, with more planned for the future.
Items for sale will include pre-rolled joints, gummies, and vapes, all from weed harvested from Green Thumb’s new Ocala-based 28-acre pot farm.
Selling at Circle K will make it "easier and more efficient for patients to purchase high-quality cannabis as part of their everyday routine when stopping by their local convenience store," said Ben Kovler, Green Thumb's founder and CEO, per CBS News.
Circle K’s Canada-based parent company said that pot – still illegal according to federal law, by the way – won’t technically be sold by the store chain, but confirmed that Circle K is leasing space in its stores to Green Thumb Industries for selling dope.
Which totally isn’t the same thing.
