Grassroots Medicine & Wellness Center is slated to open in Wynwood on May 1 at 2328 N. Miami Avenue, and it’s touted as the neighborhood’s first medicinal marijuana clinic. The wellness center is set to focus on cannabis evaluations, nutrition counseling, and alternative medicines.

It’s from an entrepreneur who was once a Buffalo Bills linebacker and went back to school to become an interventional radiologist: Dr. Hervé Damas explained his winding journey to medicinal marijuana to the Miami New Times.

One Sotheby’s International duo Alex Miranda and Leslie Cooper represented Damas in the deal.
