The state has already approved licenses for cultivation in Milford and retail in Leicester.

So far, the state has yet to approve any licenses for testing laboratories and recreational marijuana sales cannot begin in the state until that happens. All marijuana needs to be tested for contaminants at the labs before it can be sold to the public.
