The state Department of Health and Human Services stopped accepting applications for medical marijuana dispensary licenses this afternoon.

As of Wednesday morning, the state had received 14 applications. Though DHHS officials are tightlipped about who applied and for what locations, contract director Eric Borrin says that all four areas of the state are represented.

“A majority of the folks that submitted letters of intent did respond with full applications.”

Those vying to operate one of four dispensaries in the state expect to hear initial selections by late February. The first operator selected will set up shop in the southwest region of the state and has the option of running a second dispensary in another region.
