First Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Rolla Area Opens

ROLLA — Trinity Missouri’s grand opening isn’t until Friday, but that didn’t stop dozens of medical marijuana card holders, some who came from as far as 50 miles away, from lining up outside the dispensary before the soft opening Monday morning.

“Definitely more than we expected,” Trinity manager Adam Stacey said of the opening day crowd. “We weren’t expecting a line this morning.”

Medical marijuana sales started in Missouri in October, with the first locations in the St. Louis and Kansas City areas. Now they are starting to open in more rural areas, including Rolla.

Stacey said it’s easier to open a dispensary in a smaller town because national companies are looking to compete in metro areas.

“We’re at an advantage because we are sticking to what we know — the smaller communities, the Ozarks, not just the big traffic count crossroads,” Stacey said.

Trinity is planning to open locations in nearby St. James and Salem in the next couple of months. The state granted a license to a second dispensary in Rolla, to Holistic Missouri, but there is no timetable for when it may open.

Stacey isn’t sure there is a need for a second dispensary in Rolla.

“I’m sure we can adequately serve the area, but the state’s calculation is that the region can support another one,” Stacey said.

Cannabis activists in Rolla contend two might not be enough. Daniel Jones of the Rolla Cannabis Action Network said their effort to assist people in getting medical marijuana cards is outpacing the rest of the state's.

“We have helped more than 2,000 people get their cards,” Jones said. “That’s 10% of the city. Can you imagine if St. Louis or Kansas City had those numbers? There is a green wave coming, and Rolla is at the center of it.”

Locating a dispensary in Rolla was not without controversy. The zoning rules for cannabis facilities created a contentious debate in front of the Rolla City Council, with some residents and business owners demanding the regulations be as strict as possible.

Trinity Missouri’s dispensary is in a strip mall in a commercial area of town, near a supermarket and a dollar store.

Stacey said security and following the state’s rules are among his top priorities. And he said there have been no problems on the first day.

“The state is firm but fair. We follow the rules 100%, and the patients who come here for their medicine are understanding and easy to work with,” Stacey said.

Western Historical Manuscripts Collection

The University of Missouri created the Western Historical Manuscript Collection in 1943 with the mission to collect, preserve, and make available records that illuminate the history of Missouri and the broader region. In active cooperation with the State Historical Society of Missouri, a constantly growing collection of sources has been assembled to document all aspects of life in Missouri and the Midwest. In addition to the more traditional political, military, and diplomatic records, researchers will find information on religion, the arts, education, ethnic and social groupings and movements, all aspects of the economy, and on the lives of both famous and obscure individuals who in totality illustrate the experience and culture of the region.

With the expansion of the University into a four-campus system, and in keeping with the scholarly ideal of sharing all existing records with those who may be interested, the Columbia, Kansas City, Rolla and St. Louis campuses have joined in the cooperative effort with the State Historical Society of Missouri. In 2010, the State Historical Society of Missouri assumed sole management of the Western Historical Manuscript Collection and expanded access to the collection to Cape Girardeau and to Springfield to make the Western Historical Manuscript Collection a truly statewide resource readily available to faculties, students, visiting scholars, and citizens. In doing so, the Collection serves a major function of universities: the preservation and dissemination of knowledge of our past. All citizens interested in this goal are invited to join in furthering its advancement.

Legends of America

Mule Trading Post on Route 66 in Rolla, Missouri by Kathy Weiser-Alexander.

Rolla, Missouri, the county seat of Phelps County, is located about midway between St. Louis and Springfield along I-44.

The first settlers of the area were farmers who began to arrive in the early 19th century, building along the river banks and working as farmers and miners. Although the town wouldn’t begin for several more years, a man named John Webber built the first house in 1844.

St. Louis & San Francisco Railroad

The next year the Frisco Branch of the Southwest Railroad would begin to survey the land for the westward pushing railroad. A man named Lieutenant James Abert led the survey and would later become the first professor of Civil Engineering at the Missouri School of Mines.

When the railroad began to be built, a small settlement started to form in 1855 when the railroad erected an office and several warehouses. Anticipating the coming of the railroad, nearly 600 people moved to the area within six months. In 1857, Rolla was made the county seat of Phelps County and the next year, the city was officially laid out. The town was named when one of the original settlers, formerly of North Carolina, favored the name “Raleigh” after his home town. Other settlers agreed on the name on the condition that it wasn’t spelled that “funny” way and they settled on “Rolla.”

Civil War refugees take shelter in the Union camps in Rolla, Missouri by Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper, 1862.

On December 22, 1860, the first train arrived in Rolla, making the city the terminus of the road. The outbreak of the Civil War halted westward expansion of the line. During this time, many area residents had Confederate sympathies and Rolla was taken by Union forces in June 1861. Two minor forts were built during their occupation — Fort Wyman and Fort Dette, as well as Camps Glover and Davies. Soon, there were as many as 20,000 Union troops stationed in the vicinity and the town became an important transportation hub as supplies were shipped from the east and loaded to wagons headed west.

In 1870 the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy was founded due to Rolla’s location and its mineral riches. Today, the school provides 12 fields of engineering and science degrees, including mining and metallurgy.

When Route 66 came through, it replaced Route 14, a gravel road that was difficult to travel in anything but good weather. Work began on the concrete slab in 1928, and from Rolla to Lebanon, it was the last piece to be paved in Missouri because of its difficulty. The completion was cause for a huge celebration. Rolla further improved its image by completing the paving of city streets that connected with the highway. In no time, Rolla became a vacation playground as tourist cabins motels, trading posts, and fishing camps sprang up.

Today, Rolla is called home to about 20,400 people and continues to be a haven for outdoor adventurers with its proximity to the Current and Jack’s Fork Rivers, Ozark forests, caves, springs, and bluffs. The town also provides a rich view of its heritage in its historical buildings and vintage peeks of old Route 66.

On the corner of Third and Rolla Streets is the John A. Dillon Log House, built in 1857 and utilized as the first Phelps County Courthouse. Today the building houses the Phelps County Museum. In 1859 Phelps County began to build another Courthouse just across the street, which also served as a hospital and supply storage during the Civil War.

For views of Route 66, be sure to check out the Mule Trading Post just as you enter the east side of town. On the west end is the Totem Pole Trading Post, opened in 1933 offering gas and novelties to cross country travelers. Located at the corner of Route 66 and Martin Springs Drive, the vintage store sells antiques to new adventurers of the Mother Road.

For an interesting look something else altogether, visit the Rolla Stonehenge, a partial reconstruction of the ancient megalith, built by students at the University of Missouri at Rolla.

Continue westward on a scenic drive through several small settlements and resorts that were bypassed by Interstate I-44 many years ago. Along this historic stretch, you’ll see the remains of John’s Modern Cabins, built in 1935, the old ghost town of Arlington, the remains of the once-popular Stony Dell Resort, Larry Baggett’s Tribute to the Trail of Tears, and more as you make your way to Devil’s Elbow.
