A judge denied a request for a temporary restraining order against the state of Missouri that was sought by an applicant for a medical cannabis licensee.

Paul Callicoat and his family sued the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services after their application for a license was among hundreds denied by the agency.

They planned to convert their 70-acre property in Sarcoxi, Missouri, into a cultivation site.

Missouri started issuing MMJ cultivation licenses in December, though only 60 of 554 applicants will receive a permit.
