An unincorporated part of Collier County is discussing whether to allow medical marijuana dispensaries.
People are dealing with pain and other conditions that could be treated with medical marijuana. For now, they need to drive out of their way to get to a dispensary.

Cole Peacock founded the Caloosahatchee Cannabis Company. “The county commission I know is always reviewing this and continue to go back and forth into it but you know the patients and the customers in Collier they’re all driving to Lee to get to get what they need,” Peacock said.
