Sarasota County Approves Zoning for Leading Medical Cannabis Firm AltMed

Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

AltMed, a fully integrated Sarasota company that brings pharmaceutical industry precision to the development and production of medical cannabis, has been granted zoning approval for its primary location in Sarasota County.

"Sarasota County officials acted quickly and decisively with a total commitment to attracting new industry and the job opportunities we look forward to creating," says David Wright, President and CEO of AltMed. "Their responsive and business-optimized approach confirms our choice of Sarasota County as the ideal location to build our company."

"Sarasota County's board of County Commissioners and our Administrator endeavor to promote an environment that's conducive to successful businesses starting here, growing here and staying here," said Jeff Maultsby Director of the County's Office of Business and Economic Development.

The zoning approval empowers AltMed to move forward with planning and construction of facilities designed to provide medical cannabis to patients in Florida. Construction will begin as soon as AltMed is granted a medical cannabis licence by the State.

The nursery location is east of I-75 and is zoned Open Use Estates-1. The official letter from the county confirms that AltMed's plan to proceed with cultivation, processing and dispensing of medical cannabis under Bill 1030, the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014, is considered "a permitted use for the district."

About AltMed: AltMed LLC is a fully integrated, science-based Florida company bringing compassion, community engagement and pharmaceutical industry precision to the development, production and dispensing of medical cannabis. Established in early 2014 by a consortium of Sarasota residents, AltMed's Executive Chairman and its CEO are both former senior pharmaceutical executives. AltMed is participating in a competitive licensure process with the objective of becoming one of five Florida licensees selected to grow and dispense medical cannabis under the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014.
