Marijuana Moment: Missouri Launches Medical Marijuana Sales At State’s First Dispensaries

Recommended Posts

Less than two years after Missouri voters approved a ballot measure to legalize medical marijuana, dispensaries made the state’s first cannabis sales to patients on Saturday.

N’Bliss Cannabis opened the doors of two separate St. Louis County locations, in Ellisville and Manchester.

“Missouri patients have always been our north star as we work to implement the state’s medical marijuana program,” Dr. Randall Williams, director of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, said in a press release. “We greatly appreciate how hard everyone has worked so that patients can begin accessing a safe and well-regulated program.”

Officials have touted the speed with which they have gotten the voter-approved cannabis program off the ground, saying it is “one of the fastest implementations of a medical marijuana program in the United States.”

“A tremendous amount of work has occurred by the licensed facilities and our team to get us to this point, and we continue to hear from more facilities that they are ready or almost ready for their commencement inspection,” Lyndall Fraker, director of the Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation, said in a press release. “We look forward to seeing these facilities open their doors to serve patients and caregivers.”

The impending launch of sales on Saturday was first announced by the Missouri Medical Cannabis Trade Association on Friday and reported by The Springfield News-Leader.

The wait is finally over! Tomorrow morning at 9am @NBlissCannabis will open the doors to their Ellisville and Manchester locations for the first medical marijuana sales in Missouri! Congrats to the whole N'Bliss team! The #MOMMJ industry is up and running! pic.twitter.com/wyZIcoyLBv

The state, which has so far licensed 192 dispensaries and expects most of them to open their doors by the end of the year, posted an interactive map that tracks the status of approved medical marijuana businesses.

For months, regulators have been caught up in lawsuits and appeals challenging their licensing decisions, with revenues that would otherwise go to supporting veteran services instead being allocated to covering legal costs.

Missouri isn’t the only state to see medical cannabis sales launch this weekend. Virginia’s first medical marijuana dispensary also held its grand opening on Saturday.

Meanwhile, recreational sales of marijuana rolled out in Maine last week—four years after voters there approved a legalization ballot measure.

      I hope that I can become this COO, but I think the interview will be a difficult one. I am writing an essaybot review about this team, and hopefully, the hiring team will be impressed with the content that I write.

      Wow, I've heard many receipts with cannabis, but I've never heard about making marijuana tea. Maybe, one day I'll try something like that. I'm not an experienced smoker, and now I'm looking for the info about cannabis and strains because I haven't found the one I like the most. A few days ago, I came across this article about the Top 10 marijuana strains, and there you can see info about each strain. Maybe, it'll be useful for someone else!

      if you know how to grow tomatoes you can grow some mighty fine medicine. The size of the growing container, the potential size and variety of your tomatoes, adequate lighting,  complete darkness when the tomatoes sleep and good air flow just about ensure success. I live in an illegal state so my language speaks to this. I AM EXCITED TO JOIN THE TOKING HOUR THIS THURSDAY, JULY 16 WITH BLAZE AND FRIENDS.
