DHSS Approves Two Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in Sedalia, One In ‘Burg
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has completed its review of all medical marijuana facility applications.
The results of this review were released Friday. Applications designated as "Approved" have been offered a medical marijuana facility certification and have been given five days to confirm acceptance of that certification.
Notifications of approval have been sent to the email addresses of the individual who created the user account in the Medical Marijuana Registry Portal, the individual listed in the application as the Primary Contact, and at least one other individual identified in the application.
Applications designated as “Denied” have not been offered a certification. Denials are issued for several reasons, including failure to meet minimum qualification, the results of an analysis for substantial common control, the results of application scoring, or application withdrawal.
Notifications of application denial have been sent to the individual who created the application in the Medical Marijuana Registry Portal.
