Knox Medical of Orlando now has seven locations in Florida.
This one is the first between Tallahassee and the Alabama state line.
Scott Flenet, a spokesman for Knox, told Channel 3 News they already serve 700 patients in the Florida Panhandle.
He also added they are located on Racetrack Road which is away from schools, churches and other sensitive locations.
He describes Knox as a pharmacy that will fit well into the community.
Flenet said any concerns people have will be short lived.
” Those concerns fade away very quickly. we like to believe we are good neighbors. We want to show the community we are good neighbors.”
The dispensary will have full- time security when they are open.
Knox plans to open 6 more locations in Florida this year, including at least one more unannounced location in northwest Florida.
