Four county medical cannabis dispensaries licensed

As of Friday, Aug. 5, there are four entities from DeSoto County that have obtained medical cannabis dispensary licenses from the Mississippi State Department of Health. 

The four DeSoto County licenses listed from the MSDH are: Med-RE-D, LLC of Nesbit, which obtained the one-year license on July 28; Southern Crop Wellness I, LLC of Olive Branch on Aug. 2; KV Olive Branch LLC of Olive Branch on Aug. 2; and Nash Hassen of Hernando, also on Aug. 2.  

Only seven cultivation facility licenses in the entire state have been issued as of Friday, Aug. 5.  

While the licenses have been issued, MSDH anticipates that cannabis products will not become available to patients until late 2022. That is to allow time for cultivation of marijuana in the state and required safety testing.
