It would appear that Florida's burgeoning medical cannabis industry emerged relatively unscathed by Hurricane Irma.

Tampa-based grower Surterra Wellness, one of the state's largest growers, tweeted after the storm, "Minor flooding, a missing roof, but all plants are safe!"
Dispensaries were also only slightly set back by the storm.

The statewide chain Trulieve suspended delivery temporarily because of the fuel shortage, but reopened a handful of their locations the day after Hurricane Irma passed, and completely reopened all dispensaries on Sept. 14.

Knox Medical, which has a location in Orlando, reopened Wednesday, Sept. 13.
