Seven dispensary licenses were awarded to Columbia businesses, while 42 applications from Columbia were denied.

The approved businesses are:

  • GRD Columbia LLC — 204 E. Broadway
  • Shangri-La Columbia LLC — 1501 Creekwood Parkway
  • Shangri-La Columbia South LLC — 3919 Peachtree Drive

Cox anticipates commencement inspections will occur in mid-March. If a facility does not pass an inspection within a year of DHSS issuing the license, it may be revoked, according to the department website.

Approved dispensaries are expected to open during the summer, according to Cox. Once they have opened, those with Missouri medical marijuana cards will have access.
