Mississippi’s Medical Marijuana Industry Attracts Out of State Interest


Most of the 98 medical marijuana dispensaries licensed in Mississippi so far appear to be local companies.   At least they list Mississippi mailing addresses. But not all of them.   A California company plans to open dispensaries in Biloxi and Gulfport and another has a license for a Meridian location.  A Michigan company has gotten approval for a Biloxi dispensary and a Missouri company plans a location in Pearl.  Louisiana companies have been licensed for dispensaries in Olive Branch, Oxford, Bay St. Louis, Gulfport, Vicksburg, McComb and Jackson.  And Alabama companies plan to open in Meridian, Tupelo, Pearl, Starkville and Greenville.
