Good news for Museum District taco lovers. Bandito’s will be back and according to this article, there won’t be any changes. Sean McClain was the owner/operator of Bandito’s at it’s current location since 2002. The restaurant known as much for music and tex-mex closed at the beginning of the pandemic. McClain has now sold the restaurant to Sonny Heath who had this to say on RTD.

“I’m not changing anything, everything’s going to be exactly as it was,” new owner Sonny Heath said.

Heath has been in the restaurant and bar business since 1977. He also owns Chester Junction, a restaurant and bar in Chesterfield County, but he said he’s had restaurant and bars “everywhere,” including a now-closed Lakeside restaurant called Sonny’s Bar and Grill.

The Virginia Medical Cannabis Coalition announced late last week that Green Leaf Medical of Virginia, located in South Richmond, is officially open to patients seeking medical cannabis treatment. Green Leaf Medical of Virginia (gLeaf) is the second medical cannabis processor to open in the Commonwealth.

gLeaf provides a variety of high-quality medical cannabis treatments to registered patients. As of last Friday, registered patients were able to visit gLeaf and speak to a pharmacist to determine the best treatment options for their specific conditions. A mid-December Grand Opening is planned.

“We are excited to bring not only relief to patients but also a boost to the Richmond area economy through our local hires and commitment to growth,” said Joy Strand, executive vice president of Green Leaf Medical and vice president of VMCC. “Green Leaf Medical has been working to provide the highest quality of product available to our patients and have the knowledge and expertise to do it well.”

Though Green Leaf Medical is located in Richmond, any registered patient from across the state can visit the facility to receive treatment.

“Patients across the Commonwealth are finally receiving the care and treatment they need, and we are honored to share the news that Green Leaf Medical is open to serve patients,” said Katie Hellebush, executive director of VMCC. “With another processor open here in Virginia, accessibility to treatment is even easier. This is exciting news for medical cannabis patients across the state.”

Before visiting the facility, you must register as a patient with the Board of Pharmacy. In Virginia, any diagnosed condition can qualify for medical cannabis treatment, as long as a registered practitioner issues a written certification. Upon receiving written certification from a practitioner, an individual can register as a patient through the Board of Pharmacy.
