WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - A Maui business that received a license to sell medical marijuana has revealed plans for its new dispensary, which will include space for a public cannabis education center.

The Maui News reports that Pono Life Sciences Maui LLC unveiled the Kahului dispensary to a group of politicians, community leaders and others Friday. The business isn't yet selling medicinal marijuana because it hasn't gotten permission from the state Department of Health to begin production.

CEO Michael Takano says the dispensary will feature a public educational and retail area that will serve as a waiting area for those who accompany medical marijuana card holders to the facility. A restricted section with a lobby and dispensary will be accessible only to patients.
