The Netherlands has received 149 applications from growers hoping to participate in the country’s regulated cannabis cultivation experiment, according to an NL Times report.

Prospective cultivators could apply for the program from July 1 through July 28, and now the Ministries for Medical Care and of Justice and Security will evaluate the applications and license 10 growers by early 2021, the news outlet reported.

Ten local municipalities are participating in the experiment by hosting the cultivators, including Almere, Arnhem, Breda, Groningen, Heerlen, Hellevoetsluis, Maastricht, Nijmegen, Tilburg and Zaanstad.
