There are 33 proposed sites where medical marijuana businesses are looking to set up shop in Franklin County, Missouri. There have been 14 applications filed for medical marijuana dispensaries in municipalities across the county. That includes four stores in Washington, five in Pacific, two dispensaries in both Union and St. Clair, and one in Sullivan.
In addition, there are 12 proposed cultivation sites in rural parts of the county, as well as seven manufacturing facilities.
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) released that information Tuesday, less than one month after the application filing period closed for businesses looking to operate medical marijuana facilities throughout the state. It is unlikely that all of the applications will result in medical marijuana facilities.
The state is required by the law to approve at least 60 commercial growers, 86 facilities that manufacture marijuana-infused products and 192 dispensary licenses, 24 dispensaries for each of the state’s eight congressional districts.
