Meanwhile, the program’s oversight panel was to get an update Tuesday on plans to open new dispensaries in New Castle and in Kent County.

New York-based Columbia Care, which operates medical marijuana facilities in five states and the District of Columbia, was awarded the contract for the Kent County dispensary, which is expected to open in the spring.

The state also is moving ahead with plans for a spring 2018 opening of an additional compassion center in New Castle County, to be run by Compassionate Care Research Institute.
