The state of Connecticut plans to award at least three more licenses for medical marijuana dispensaries and the state Department of Consumer Protection will be taking applications.
The Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) announced Wednesday it has issued a Request for Application.
“Our state’s Medical Marijuana Program is incredibly successful, and is growing rapidly,” Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle Seagull said in a statement. “When there is a substantial increase in the number of patients, DCP can issue new RFAs in order to best meet the demand for medication, and continue our commitment to quality health care.”
There are nine dispensary facilities http://www.ct.gov/dcp/cwp/view.asp?q=548068 and four producers providing medication for the state’s 22,348 medical marijuana patients. There are also 807 certifying physicians and advanced practice registered nurses in the state of Connecticut.
