Planning board members approved Washington County's first permit for a marijuana cultivation facility near Lincoln and Cane Hill during a meeting Thursday.

Background

The Medical Marijuana Commission began taking applications to license five cultivation sites and 32 dispensaries in June. The commission was expected to award licenses sometime after Sept. 18, which was the deadline for applications. Voters approved an amendment legalizing medical marijuana for patients with certain qualifying medical conditions last year.
