Homer is on track to see its first marijuana dispensary open for business this fall. Uncle Herb’s, a licensed retailer with a location in Anchorage, hopes to open a second location in Homer along Ocean Drive.

“We’re going to do everything we can to be a model facility,” says Owner Lloyd Siassny.

The Homer location is about 600 square feet, but the retail space will only occupy a small portion of the building.

“We have lots of room to expand. If the business does well, we will,” Stiassny explained.
