Missouri officials revealed on January 23 the long-anticipated list of businesses that will be allowed to sell medical marijuana to qualified patients starting later this year.

Como Health, of which Merida Capital Partners III owns ~45%, won a total of five licenses: Two in Congressional district 1 (Florrisant and St. Louis); one in Congressional district 2 (Valley Park); one in Congressional district 4 (Columbia); and one in Congressional district 7 (Branson West).

The Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) licensed 192 dispensaries statewide — 24 in each of the state’s eight congressional districts — to sell marijuana legally to Missourians with a valid medical marijuana patient card.
