Medicine Man

Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (OTCQX: MDCL) become the first publicly-traded company to receive suitability approval by the state of Colorado. The Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) has approved the company’s application for suitability.

“We are thrilled that Medicine Man Technologies is the first publicly-traded company to receive suitability approval. This is a huge milestone in our march to become the largest cannabis company in Colorado,” said Justin Dye, Chief Executive Officer. “We appreciate the responsibility of running a credible cannabis company and are laser-focused on merging Colorado’s leading cannabis companies into one organization with a true focus on consumers.”

Last year, the Colorado legislature passed, and the Governor signed House Bill 19-1090 which allowed publicly traded companies to own Colorado cannabis licenses. The state has a mandated review designed to ensure that companies are suitable to run an above-board and compliant cannabis company.
