A medical cannabis pharmacy is coming to Logan.

The Utah Department of Health announced on Friday the 14 companies around the state that have been awarded medical cannabis pharmacy licenses.

Included in the UDOH list is True North of Utah, a company that will operate medical cannabis pharmacies in Ogden and Logan.

The Logan facility will be located at 2359 N. Main St., Logan.

According to a press release from UDOH the 14 companies were selected from more than 130 applications in a competitive bidding process.

“The evaluation committee spent hundreds of hours evaluating applications from companies seeking a limited number of licenses.

“The Utah Department of Health is committed to ensuring patients have safe and reliable access to medical cannabis and we are confident the companies selected are best prepared to meet the needs of Utah patients and provide the best value to Utah communities,” Oborn said.
