Florida regulators are allowing a second medical marijuana company, Atlanta-based Surterra Wellness, to exceed the statutory cap of 35 dispensaries per company.

State health officials will allow the company to open six more medical marijuana dispensaries after Surterra sued in response to a health department ruling allowing competing MMJ company Trulieve to exceed the limit, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.
