Columbia’s first day of recreational marijuana sales begins

Sales of recreational marijuana are underway in Columbia this (Tuesday) morning.

Columbia’s city council voted unanimously last night to approve revisions to marijuana business licensing regulations.

53 percent of Missouri voters approved Constitutional Amendment three in November, which legalized non-medical marijuana. Under amendment three, any medical marijuana facility holding an active license has the right to convert that license to a comprehensive marijuana facility license.

Columbia spokeswoman Sydney Olsen tells 939 the Eagle that sales began this morning because the city started accepting pre-applications before last night’s meeting to be prepared assuming the council approved it.

Olsen also says all six Columbia marijuana license holders have submitted requests to convert their medical licenses to comprehensive licenses.
