Botanical and smokeable medicinal marijuana becomes legal in Louisiana on January 1.

Some clinicians fear that supply may not be able to keep pace with demand.

But distributors and pharmacists have high expectations.

They’re ready to start filling these shelves at the H&W Drug Store in Tchoupitoulas.

“Yes, we’ve been ready for this for a long time,” said owner Ruston Henry.

H&W is one of nine pharmacies licensed statewide to distribute the drug.

“It’s just a different form because the cost to produce it is more desirable and the savings can be passed on to patients,” Henry said.

But while pharmacist Henry is ready, some are wondering if supply can keep up with demand.

“The answer is here – we don’t have enough farmers,” said Dr. Robin Patel.

For months, WDSU investigators have pointed to what some are calling problems with the medical marijuana industry in Louisiana, and a shortage of medical marijuana products.

“I think they’re really having inventory issues now,” Patel said.

The state has two farmers, far fewer than neighboring Arkansas.

LSU and Southern University hold the growing licenses – but they are growing the business.

Elera is Southern partner and Good Day Farm is LSU’s.

This company has changed its name twice – from GB to Wellcana to Good Day Farm.

The company says it’s ready.

Henry hopes so.

“Let’s not put the cart before the horse,” said Henry, “if they can keep up, that’s great.”

In a written statement, State Representative Joe Marino, who is independent of Gretna, who has formed a committee to deal with the matter, said:

“I confirmed yesterday with the LDAF and the growers that the flowers are being distributed to dispensaries and will be available to patients on January 1. This is an important step forward in our medical cannabis program.”
