Two companies have been given the OK to open medical marijuana dispensaries in the Mahoning Valley.

Provisional licenses were approved for Green Leaf Therapy, LLC and B Cubed Operations Ohio, LLC.

Green Leaf Therapy is planning to open its location at 93 S Bridge Street in Struthers while B Cubed Operations Ohio will be located at 437 E Liberty Street in Hubbard.

The provisional license gives the companies the go-ahead to start building dispensaries but they won't be able to open until they pass an inspection by the Ohio Pharmacy Board.

According to the Ohio Secretary of State's website, Green Leaf Therapy is locally-owned. Vicki Groner of New Middletown is listed as the statutory agent.

The Valley already has two other medical marijuana dispensaries, gLeaf Medical Cannabis in Warren and Leaf Relief in Youngstown.
