Businessmen could control north Louisiana medical marijuana market
Two businessmen with ties to the Shreveport area may soon control the medical marijuana market in north Louisiana, The Shreveport Times reports.
William “Bill” Windham and Gregory Morrison have jointly filed applications to become approved medical marijuana pharmacies through their companies NorLa Pharmacy of Shreveport and Delta MedMar of West Monroe.
The Shreveport company has been ranked No. 1 among applicants for northwest Louisiana by the Louisiana Board of Pharmacy’s application review committee, according to documents provided by the board’s attorney, Carlos Finalet.
And the second-ranked applicant in the northwest region says state officials have recommended to him that he withdraw his application, indicating Windham and Morrison’s NorLa Pharmacy will likely be granted the license in northwest Louisiana when the board meets March 27 and 28.
The committee has yet to provide rankings of applications for northeast Louisiana. A review committee has recommended that more applications be sought for the region.
The two men have enlisted a licensed non-profit cannabis producer from New Mexico to help steer both of their proposed ventures for north Louisiana.
