PhytoScience Institute was one of five applicants for the license. Each applicant received scores on their business plans, health needs or registered patients and other factors.

The Department of Public Safety says the institute had the highest score.



The department says there are currently 4,609 patients registered for medical marijuana as of Aug. 24. State law will allow for a sixth dispensary when there are 7,000 registered patients.
