In September, ABC News reported that Utah passed a substitute bill, which will allow the state to have 14 medical cannabis dispensaries. However, the dispensaries’ locations haven’t been disclosed.
According to Marijuana Business Daily, Rich Oborn, the director of the Utah Department of Health’s Center for Medical Cannabis, said that the state expects dozens of applicants to operate cannabis dispensaries. The state has made four zonal divisions so that each zone gets at least one dispensary.
Mike Melendez, the policy director for the Libertas Institute, said, “Six dispensaries will open in March with another 8 in July. We just don’t know where yet. That’s going to be up to the regulators who are going to decide where they go.”
