Circle K gas stations will begin to sell cannabis at their stores as early as next year.

“The opening of RISE Express stores at Circle K locations is a game-changer. Convenience is a strong channel in retail, and people want more access to cannabis…The new RISE Express model is a huge step forward in making it easier and more efficient for patients to purchase high-quality cannabis as part of their everyday routine when stopping by their local convenience store,” Green Thumb CEO Ben Kovler, said in a statement.
