Forty-eight applicants in Missouri have been chosen in the second round of a licensing lottery to receive cannabis microbusiness permits.

The lottery drawing Tuesday selected the winners of 33 microbusiness wholesale licenses and 24 microbusiness retail permits.

Applicants did not have to be Missouri residents, although majority owners of a marijuana business in the state are required to meet at least one eligibility criteria, such as:

  • Having a disability connected to military service.
  • A conviction for a nonviolent marijuana offense.
  • Residing in a qualifying ZIP code.

The application period for the second round, which closed April 29, drew 2,083 total applications – 734 for wholesale and 1,349 for retail.
