Minnesota is looking for testing labs to inspect medical marijuana products for potency, safety and consistency.
Applications from labs that would like to be considered are due in March, and the state is scheduled to award licenses by mid-April, according to a report on TwinCities.com.
Late last year, Minnesota awarded licenses to two companies – LeafLine Labs and Minnesota Medical Solutions – to produce non-smokable MMJ for patients in the state.
The companies can operate up to four dispensaries each and will peddle cannabis-infused pills, oils and vaporizable MMJ to patients.
If the rest of the process goes smoothly, medical marijuana sales could begin in July.
