"Health and Senior Services is granting the public the opportunity to provide feedback on drafts of application questions and scoring criteria that will determine which applicants will soon become licensed medical marijuana facilities throughout the state.
Scoring criteria and application questions will make up part of the facility license application which will be available on June 4. The Department will accept completed application forms beginning August 3.
“It has remained important to us that we allow the public to weigh in on each phase of this program’s development,” said Lyndall Fraker, Director of DHSS’s Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation. “It is our job to implement this medical program for the patients of Missouri, and to do that successfully, we need to listen to all feedback.”
DHSS established ten advisory committees –one for each of the application scoring criteria established by the Missouri Constitution—to review the drafted application scoring questions. Members were selected by the Department with the consultation of members of the Governor’s cabinet, based on the member’s expertise or background in the subject matter under the purview of the committee."
