Accepted and denied applicants could be posted as early as this afternoon
On Thursday morning the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services began notifying more than 1,100 applicants for coveted medical marijuana dispensary licenses as to whether they would be permitted to sell cannabis inside highly secured retail facilities.
Department spokeswoman Lisa Cox told the News-Leader by text message that the full list of accepted and denied license applicants could be posted online as early as this afternoon.
A Springfield applicant, Desmond Morris, said his Wholesome Bud Company had not yet heard the status of its dispensary application.
“If it tracks like the others, we will know by 10 a.m.,” he said in a text message.
“Fingers crossed,” said Jimmy Koch in a social media message. He is tied to an application at the Outland Complex on downtown Springfield’s South Avenue. “Seems like the bigger out of state connected (corporations) have been winning.”
