Over $2 Million of Funds from Missouri’s Medical Cannabis Program Go to Veterans
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) has announced that over $2 million of funds from the state’s medical cannabis program will be transferred to the Missouri Veterans Commission for health and care services, according to an OzarksFirst.com report.
Lyndall Fraker, director of the Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation, told the news outlet that medical cannabis facilities are now operational in the state, with the first testing laboratory set to open soon, and that medical cannabis will be available for patients later this month.
The state’s 2018 medical cannabis law includes a provision that requires fees and taxes collected by DHSS to be directed to the Missouri Veterans Commission once operational expenses are covered, OzarksFirst.com reported.
