A Louisiana medical cannabis cultivator is planning to release a limited amount of product in May, which could temporarily alleviate some frustration from the ongoing delay in the program’s rollout.

However, it’s still not clear when sales would begin.

GB Sciences, which has the contract to cultivate medical marijuana for Louisiana State University, will release the marijuana it has grown in a temporary facility to the nine permitted pharmacies in the state, The Acadiana Advocate reported.

The move stems from patients and advocates protesting the slow progress of the program.
