The other day, The Maryland Cannabis Commission (MMCC) announced the approved licensees to act as growers and dispensaries.
We will be watching these 102 entities closely as Phase 2 of the application process begins.
Many of these entities will presumably become acquisition targets as the Maryland medical marijuana industry sparks up.
Here's the Important Details
102 dispensary entities were awarded Stage One license pre-approvals from a total of 811 applications submitted for up to 109 available licenses statewide.
This marks the conclusion of this phase of the Grower, Processor, and Dispensary application process.
Each pre-awardee has 365 days from date of pre-approval to implement their operations.
The MMCC has an expectation that these dispensaries will operate in an extremely professional manner.
All 10 cultivator pre-awardees who submitted a separate Dispensary application were awarded a Dispensary pre-approval.
The pre-approved Dispensary entities will continue on to Stage Two of the approval process, which will include undergoing criminal background investigations, financial due diligence, and compliance inspections by the MMCC, as well as completing regulatory requirements, raising capital, securing local zoning approvals, and construction of facilities.
The Commissioners will vote for licensure in a public meeting once compliance with the regulatory requirements is complete.
