Justice Grown, a multi-state cannabis operator which holds licenses in each California, Pennsylvania, Illinois, New Jersey, and Massachusetts, is proud to announce that it has acquired three new cannabis cultivation licenses in the Missouri medical market and two cannabis pharmacy licenses in Utah's medical market. With the acquisition of these licenses, Missouri and Utah are the sixth and seventh states added to Justice Grown's repertoire.
In Missouri, the competition was fierce, with almost 600 applicants vying for the coveted cultivation licenses. After a blind review of the applications by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, only 60 cultivation licenses were awarded. Justice Grown's three new cultivation licenses will allow the company to participate in The Show-Me State's medical cannabis program through the growth and production of flower products.
In Utah, where dispensaries are technically referred to as "medical cannabis pharmacies," Justice Grown was awarded two licenses to operate locations in Salt Lake City and St. George, respectively. The selection process in the Beehive State was even narrower, as only 14 licenses were awarded, with a maximum of two awarded per company.
