Medical Marijuana Regulation
- For those attempting to conduct background checks, we do not yet have the 4-digit PIN from law enforcement that will be required. This will be posted here when it is available.
- Per state statute, “No person shall carry on, conduct or transact a business under a name which contains as part of the name the words "pharmacist", "pharmacy", "apothecary", "apothecary shop", "chemist shop", "drug store", "druggist", "drugs", "consultant pharmacist", or any word of similar or like import, unless the place of business is supervised by a licensed pharmacist." Additional information can be found at Chapter 338.260.
