After a very controversial and legally challenged roll out of Missouri’s medical marijuana program, let the canna-games begin!
Want to know what will happen? Similar rollouts tell the future - the questionable licensing process and unjust scoring process will likely hinder and taint the DHSS for years to come.
Two state-licensed medical marijuana facilities have successfully completed commencement inspections with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), the agency tasked with regulating the state’s new program.
Both facilities, which have received authority from DHSS to operate, are cultivation facilities and will be among 60 total facilities in Missouri able to grow medical marijuana for infused-product manufacturing facilities and directly for retail dispensaries. DHSS is continuing the process of verifying all licensees’ compliance with minimum standards for licensure. Facilities are able to request scheduling of their commencement inspection upon completion of these verifications. When an inspection is successfully completed, the facility is authorized to operate within the confines of Article XIV of the Missouri Constitution.
