Florida’s medical cannabis marketplace is set to see a significant boost in the number of businesses that can operate in the state as regulators approved licenses for eight more firms in addition to the 14 existing MMJ operators.

The state will grant the additional licenses to companies that failed to gain approval during the first round of licensing in 2015, the News Service of Florida reported.

The news agency also noted the settlement puts an end to months of legal battles surrounding the Florida health department and the original losing applicants.
