BROOKINGS – The Brookings City Council on Tuesday approved an application by TK Cannabis LLC to open a medical cannabis dispensary in Brookings. The vote was unanimous with all council members present.
TK Cannabis LLC, dba Prairie Grass, is owned by Trifon Theodosopoulos.
City Clerk Bonnie Foster said the dispensary was to be located at 310 Seventh St. W.
“The city manager and staff have reviewed the application received and determined all requirements have been satisfied,” Foster said.
“An inspection of the facility, following remodeling and prior to the opening of the business would be required,” Foster said.
Theodosopoulos thanked the council for the opportunity to seek a medical cannabis license.
“I’m a lifelong resident of Brookings, and I see a need for something like this to be in the city limits,” Theodosopoulos said, adding he wanted to provide “the necessary products for people that do benefit from it.”
He said he already owns the property where the dispensary will be located.
“As we obtain licenses from the city and the state level, we are ready to start construction and have a building ready to operate in a short amount of time,” Theodosopoulos said.
