Hundreds of marijuana cultivation applications denied in Missouri

A total of 554 applications were filed. With only 60 allowed, for now that means only 11% of applications got the green light.


  1. It doesn't take money to make money the law was wrote for the rich to only make money what also happened to the 24 differing dispensary and cultivations that were supposed to come out per district. And what happened to what the voters voted for…. oh yeah what people dodnt realise is we passed 2 ballot measures and the second one beside new approach gave the government the ability to do just this what they are doing taking bribes and lobbyists money to give the licenses to people they only want growing that can fill political pocket books

  2. Now I fully understand why the FBI came to Missouri to investigate the new program. It wasn't the people that they are investigating, it's the Missouri government in charge of the program and all of the lost income/capital from all of the investors/applicants. Those applicants as a whole lost millions of dollars due to and to the Missouri State government. Cannabis is illegal at the federal level only. There are no laws at the federal level that make business plans illegal, nor investments in business plans. Some government officials will have to answer regarding the application monies gained by the application protocol, since it was not given as a lottery based application, but rather as an augmented contract ie. You can take it, but you can't leave it or negotiate it, if you want to apply. And we will decide if you will be approved by Missouri – rather than your company won the lottery and is being granted approval. Missouri should have done it as a lottery, just like tobacco farming and tobacco seed purchases were/is granted approval through a lottery system. No way to make financial gains through political pull and banking institution having those same political associations.

  3. Thieves, that is what we voted for. To promote government thieves because fuck what the people want. But hey, no one wants to force this bullshit to stop. Let's keep hoping the broken system will fix itself.

  4. Yeah they did the same thing in Canada. If you have connections with govt you get green lighted, while those that were previously running as dispensaries / compassion clubs for a long time never got approval for retail despite having years of experience. We have a former police chief that conducted raids on grow ops in past, now being a owner of a chain of recreational MJ locations. GO FIGURE.
