SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food announced Friday it has chosen eight applicants that will be licensed to grow medical marijuana in the state. "Half of the awardees already have existing businesses in Utah and the other half are out of state but have Utah ties. All grows will be located in Utah. Seven of the proposed sites are in rural areas and one is in an urban area," Kerry W. Gibson, commissioner of the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food, said in a statement.
David O'Neal: Utah legislators should be ashamed of themselves for subverting the will of the voters that put their trust in them.
Jeanine Davis: The voters of Utah had no idea that the legislators would turn Prop 2 into a giant RACKET of BS! We should have known from their record. VOTE THEM OUT! Probably best to stuck with your local guy you've known since high school to get your medicine.
