As the Medical Marijuana Commission takes steps toward licensing the first dispensaries in the state, Commission Spokesperson Scott Hardin has released a list of the companies who have applied, and which zones they have applied for. 

The following companies have paid the $15,000 licensing fee and posted the $100,000 performance bond. However, companies are limited to one dispensary, though several applied for multiple zones. Now, companies must choose the location they'd like to license. 

Below is the list of each zone and the companies that have applied to dispense there.
