Medical Marijuana is expected to hit shelves in the next week as final clinical tests are completed. In Lafayette, Apothecary Shoppe is the only certified dispensary that is working with the state of Louisiana. Commissioner of Agriculture Mike Strain joined Acadiana's Morning News to talk about the roll-out and answer some real questions about delays in the program.
