Cresco buys Columbia Care

Ohio patients learned today that Cresco Labs at multi state marijuana operator is moving to purchase Columbia Care Ohio . Currently Cresco owns 5 Ohio Dispensaries which is the states limit . There are 4 Columbia Care Dispensaries which used to be Strawberry Fields . Cresco bought 4 of its shops from Verdant Creations which is actually owned by a company known as Hon and rebranded them Sunnyside . So its very hard for Ohio patients to keep up with these changes . I just want to get at the heart of my concern about this merger . Columbia Care currently is one a few Ohio Dispensaries that stack daily or weekly discounts on top of veteran and indigent discounts which saves patients a lot of money . When Cresco bought all of the Verdant locations except 1 they ended the stacking discounts . So its likely that once Cresco takes control of Columbia Care it will end the stacking discounts . Cresco and Columbia care also have a Ohio Cultivators License and a Ohio Processor License. These companies merging would have Cresco breaking the states rules on limits for licensing . Since this has never been done many are left wondering what the state will do . We like to get a interview with someone from Cresco to provide more information . All we know for sure this is one of the biggest Marijuana mergers in US history and also that this has been in the making for a while under a special code name and this transaction involves billions of dollars . Hopefully patients wont loose the stacking discount . I have not been able to tour either one of these places but I would love to take a tour and see what's going on at both of these places .
