The question now becomes one of business and law. What legal and equitable recourse do these licensed pharmacists have against the municipalities that deny them of doing business? Furthermore, do the thousands of patients that have paid for their cards, that have been waiting for a dispensary to open have any legal recourse for the delays? These questions may soon be answered if a lawsuit filed by D&B Wellness goes to trial.
