James DiNatale and George Irwin have each tried to land a license from the state to develop a medical marijuana dispensary.
DiNatale did not receive one as part of his partnership he started called Superior Grow Lab that was looking to grow medical marijuana in the city.
Irwin is waiting to hear whether he will receive one of the new 24 licenses the state will hand out.
