Wondering what a medical marijuana dispensary looks like?

RISE Latrobe, which is slated to open Thursday, will host an open house from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday. The public can tour the dispensary and speak with staff members at the site, 117 Beatty County Road, Unity Township.

Part of RISE Dispensaries, the local facility is owned and operated by Chicago-based Green Thumb Industries, a national cannabis consumer packaged goods company. RISE Latrobe will join other RISE dispensaries already open across the state in York, Steelton, Erie and Carlisle.

Twelve new locations are coming soon, according to their website.

Green Thumb Industries has 13 manufacturing facilities and 89 retail licenses, employing about 1,100 people.

Regular hours for when the site is officially open will be a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
