"We are thrilled by the Georgia Access to Medical Cannabis Commission announcement of its intent to award Trulieve one of two Class 1 production licenses in the State of Georgia. This will expand our Southeast operations hub to our neighboring state, and we are excited to bring the benefits of Trulieve cannabis products to Georgia patients," said Kim Rivers, CEO of Trulieve. "As the largest cannabis company in Florida, built on providing the broadest patient access to medical marijuana in the state, we feel well-positioned to approach the Georgia market with the same commitment to quality products, patient access, and positive customer experience. We strive to invest in underserved communities, source local materials and labor wherever possible, and be a good neighbor and partner everywhere we operate, and this is what we intend to bring to the town of Adel and to Cook County.
