The Department of Finance and Administration said on February, 5, the businesses have each paid their $15,000 licensing fees and posted their $100,000 performance bond.
Last month, the medical marijuana commission said it intended to license the 32 businesses after approving scores from an outside consultant, hired to review their applications.
One of the five cultivation facilities, licensed by the state, was one of the first to get approval last month to begin growing medical marijuana.
