Marijuana Dispensaries in West Virginia

The Bureau issued a press release on November 19, 2019 announcing that applications for growers, processors, dispensaries, and laboratories will be available beginning December 19, 2019 and closing February 18, 2020 at 3:00 pm.

Upon closing, there is no specified time for applications to be reviewed, scored and permits awarded.

It is anticipated this may take up to six months.  That would mean dispensary approvals should begin in August 2020.  There is no timeline to define how long it will take for dispensary locations to begin opening at this time.  We hope to see locations soon.
