US (MO): Now it is possible to apply to grow or sell MMJ in Missouri

June 4th is the first day that wannabe growers can apply for getting a growing or selling license. In addition to that, doctors as well can start prescribing MMJ treatments. 

Missouri is the 33rd state to legalize cannabis for medical purposes, thus gaining the attention of investors seeking new markets. 

The state of Missouri is required to approve at least 60 commercial growers, 86 growing facilities and 192 dispensaries. 

Missouri’s efficiency is due in part to its ability to study marijuana programs in other states, John Cardetti said, a spokesman with the Missouri Medical Cannabis Trade Association, and the fact that Amendment 2 sets strict deadlines for DSS to establish regulations.

“They’ve been remarkably open and receptive to suggestions throughout this process,” said Dan Viets, a longtime medical marijuana advocate who helped write Amendment 2 and heads the Missouri Cannabis Industry Association.

Mitch Greene, with Feel State, said: “Are there things we would like to see change? Maybe, but we’re going to work within the parameters we’ve been given. At the end of the day, we’ve developed a business plan that we feel very confident in.”
