The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services issued five new medical marijuana licenses Friday for infused product manufacturing facilities.
During the compliance review process for all new medical marijuana facility licenses, DHSS determined that certain facilities submitted duplicative applications for licenses and therefore received multiple licenses for a single proposed facility.
While applicants were not prohibited from submitting duplicative applications, only one facility can only utilize one license. Therefore, DHSS has merged the redundant licenses for each of these facilities and issued five new licenses to the entities next in line on the conditionally denied applicant list.
“Our team is working hard to verify that each licensee is in compliance with the constitutional standards for licensure and that each facility implements what they proposed in their application,” said Lyndall Fraker, director of the DHSS Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation. “Our thorough verification process is in place so that we can maintain the kind of medical program that Missourians voted for—one that is safe and well-regulated.”
Merging redundant licenses will not impact these facilities’ ability to implement what they proposed in their applications….
