The ‘Medical Cannabis’ sign can be interpreted as a political statement rather than advertising, because the store functions as a retail establishment and a reform office, according to Cornwell.
He said the store’s location was chosen based on the space offered and not on who is next door.
However, Cornwell said he will make recommendations for those seeking medical treatment.
“I liked the size of the shop and I knew that it had an office and a bathroom and storage. I feel perfectly safe next to Officer LaRosa here in Little 5 Points,” he said.
“It’s going to gain a lot of attention and bring a lot of attention into the area. As far as it affecting it in a negative way, no,” he said.
“I don’t make plans that far along, and it’s a little premature because I don’t think Georgia’s going to move that fast. I’m 63 and it might take a while. I’ve already been doing it 40 years,” he said.
“We sell a CBD [Cannabidiol] oil that’s THC free, and we’ll be selling lotions and salves and hemp seed, and we have raw pressed virgin hemp oil that’s used for skin and stuff,” he said. “We’ll be having everything that’s just legal. No ganga. No pipes.”
Forty year advocate of marijuana reform Paul Cornwell will debut his new store called The Pot Shop located in Little 5 Points on April 20 at 4:20 p.m. The shop boldly sports a neon green, fluorescent sign reading ‘Medical Cannabis’ and is next door to Atlanta Police Department’s Zone 6 mini precinct.
In light of Governor Nathan Deal preparing to sign House Bill 1 (HB 1) into legislation, Cornwell said he does not plan on becoming a dispensary, which is a clinic where medicines are provided, anytime soon.
