License for Weed

Being approved for a medical marijuana facility license is no easy task. During SBJ’s CEO Roundtable last month on medical marijuana, Lyndall Fraker, director of Missouri Department of Health’s medical marijuana program, laid out the categories of criteria that the 2,269 applications were scored

The applications were scored by:

  • background, qualifications and relevant experience of the principal officers or managers;
  • overall business plan;
  • site security;
  • experience in a legal cannabis market;
  • the potential for economic impact;
  • experience in cultivation, manufacturing or testing food or beverages;
  • experience in health care for those looking to open a medical marijuana dispensary; and
  • competitiveness in the marketplace.
