"We do a lot of community outreach before we even open our stores," said Michelle Terrell with Curaleaf. "So all the businesses know we are here, we hold events for our patients and their families."
The company currently has eight locations in Florida, but by the end of 2019 it will have more than 30, including in Orlando and Daytona Beach.
