The grand opening of Atlantic City's third licensed recreational marijuana dispensary, Legal Distribution, is Monday.

A grand opening is scheduled for noon with Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small cutting the ribbon to welcome the new business.

Legal Distribution, at 3112 Atlantic Ave. -- between Chelsea and Montpelier Avenues -- plans to give grand opening customers free t-shirts and donuts, and pledges to offer a safe, easy, and quicker way to buy cannabis products.

On the site of the former Atlantic City Elks Lodge, steps away from Tropicana Casino, Legal Distribution had its soft opening this week.

Owner Lou Freeman is a South Jersey businessman who owns several restaurants, including Margate's Bocca.

He boasts that it's Atlantic City's first locally-owned legal weed shop with three of the business's four owners being graduates of Atlantic City High School.

Legal Distribution's website offers a diverse range of cannabis products, from edibles, and concentrates, to vaping products and tinctures, a liquid extract made by soaking cannabis flowers to extract the plant's active ingredients.

Then, of course, there is "the flower", the dried buds of marijuana that are smoked.
