Acadiana's only medical marijuana pharmacy is preparing for more customers now that a new medical marijuana law was passed this weekend.

Going into effect Saturday, all physicians can now prescribe medical marijuana if they believe their patient's condition warrants treatment.

the staff at the apothecary shoppe in Lafayette say wider access will be beneficial to the people of Louisiana.

"I think it's a great opportunity for patients who are in need of some type of medical treatment or relief to be able to access medical marijuana," Kevin Lagrange, The Apothecary Shoppe Pharmacist said.
