Medical Cannabis is decriminalized in Mississippi

Mississippi has opened its doors for MEDICAL CANNABIS LEGALIZATION, taking this law into immediate effect from 1st July 2022.

Another piece of fantastic news has finally reached the Mississippi legislation. Medical Cannabis decriminalization law in Mississippi is finally into effect from 1st July 2022, with the plans for state-licensed dispensaries and many other facilities to open this year. Since the medical marijuana program is not operational yet, the Director of the Medical Cannabis Program in Mississippi, Kris Jones, said that licensed dispensaries and other facilities would be worked out later this year. Jones shared to Eagle that.
“We expect that it will probably be the calendar year-end before a legal, medical marijuana product is available through licensed dispensaries because the businesses have to get established, and the program has to hire to get the crops in the ground.”
