Four medical marijuana collective applicants have moved closer toward being approved in Washington DC. Seventeen collectives originally applied, and the group was narrowed down to 4 using the Health Department’s scoring system.
Now that the four proposed collectives have scored enough points, they will be reviewed by a panel for approval by advisory neighborhood commissions, depending upon their proposed locations.
This news comes as a welcome step for the DC medical marijuana program. Only two weeks ago, 6 marijuana cultivation centers were approved in the district.
Advisory Neighborhood Commissions have approximately 30 days to evaluate the businesses. Next, officials from the Health Department will finish the application process in June. Should everything go as planned, medical marijuana patients could have safe access to their meds in as little as a few weeks.
