(Chanelle Bessette, Reno Gazette-Journal) – A new medical marijuana dispensary is coming to Reno’s Midtown district, taking over the building that currently houses the Scotland Yard Spy Shop at 1085 S. Virginia St. The property was recently purchased for around $1.2 million.

Scotland Yard Spy Shop owners David and Debbie Currier acquired new property across the street for about half the cost of what they got for their old building. According to David, they plan to relocate their business and expand their inventory in the coming months.

The dispensary, to be called Blüm, will be part of a chain of dispensaries run by MediFarm, a subsidiary of the public-traded Terra Tech company which is based in Irvine, Calif. The company is also building a dispensary near the Las Vegas Strip and has plans for two more in unincorporated Clark County. This is their first dispensary in Northern Nevada.

The Blüm dispensary’s location will be somewhat unique, as it is much closer to a residential neighborhood and commercial foot traffic than Reno’s Sierra Wellness Connection and Sparks’ Silver State Relief.
