Hi Shawn! Are you considering acquiring a license? If so, you'll have to keep in mind that the answers to questions 1 +2 vary by state. In regards to 3, in most cases, you do not need the approval of a medical professional to acquire a license, however in some medical markets, it is possible for a physician to be on staff at a retail location to engage with patients. Hope this helps!

This will definitely depend on the state that you're looking to apply for a license in. If you want to share that, I can try to point you in the right direction!
