The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) issued five new medical cannabis manufacturing licenses July 24, according to a KY3.com report.
DHSS initially licensed 86 facilities in January to manufacture cannabis-infused products such as edibles, tinctures and concentrates, but has since determined that certain companies submitted duplicate applications and then received multiple licenses for one facility, the news outlet reported.
Now, DHSS has merged the duplicate licenses and has awarded five new licenses to the applicants who were next in line, according to KY3.com.
The new licensees are MidAmeriCanna, LLC, in St. Louis, Nature’s Med MO, LLC, in St. Louis, ROI Labs of Atherton, LLC, in Independence, Missouri Made Marijuana, LLC, in Grain Valley and Kings Garden Midwest, LLC, in Trenton.
With the issuance of the five new licenses, the state has now licensed the minimum number of manufacturers required under Missouri’s medical cannabis law, KY3.com reported.
