Kent county will soon be home to a new medical marijuana dispensary.

47 ABC reports that Columbia Care, announced last week that is has been selected as a licensee to serve patients in the state of Delaware.

The company's manufacturing facility and pharmacy are set to open in Kent County in the second half of 2017, although NO word yet on exactly where. This will bring the total number of licensed operators in Delaware to two with a third one expected to be awarded later on this year in Sussex County.

Columbia Care CEO Nicholas Vita says in a statement, "Our organization is delighted and honored to be selected as one of Delaware's operators. On behalf of our Delaware-based team and the entire national organization, we are so thankful for this opportunity and privilege. We commit to work tirelessly with all of Delaware's stakeholders to provide access to the highest quality medicine and customer service. As the first state to ratify the Constitution, Delaware has a storied history of demonstrating national leadership while maintaining its unique sense of community. We will endeavor to contribute to the fabric of the First State and improve the lives of qualifying patients. Our deepest thanks to all stakeholders for their support including the Governor, Secretary, Department, Administrators, Legislature, Senators, Congressmen and all of the individuals who have given us this honor and opportunity."

First State Compassion Center, located outside of Wilmington, is currently the only medical marijuana dispensary in Delaware.
