Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves signed a medical cannabis legalization bill into law Feb. 2 and already, the State Department of Health is making plans to accept applications for patients, medical practitioners and businesses.

The department announced Feb. 4 that it plans to launch the licensing process by June, according to the Associated Press.
