Leonid McKayThe cannabis authority has received 26 applications from potential cannabis clubs requesting a licence to sell home-grown marijuana, according to Leonid McKay who heads the Authority for the Responsible Use of Cannabis. “Let me make this clear. Just because we have 26 applications, it does not mean we will be granting 26 licences. There will be a rigorous vetting process,” McKay said. He was not in a position to give a date when the first licences will start being issued due to the detailed vetting process involved. McKay was addressing a press conference held to launch new guidelines on the responsible use of cannabis. (See also: No timeline yet for 26 entities seeking cannabis association license)
