Medical Marijuana closer to starting operations in Missouri


MISSOURI — Medical marijuana is a step closer to reality in Missouri today.

The state has approved operations for the first testing facility.

That means sales are expected to soon begin.

State workers had originally pointed to August as the likely start date for sales, but issues including approving an official testing facility slowed the process.

There are no details yet on when any dispensaries plan to open in Southwest Missouri.
