WASHINGTON -- They're lining up to grow and sell pot in the nation's capital.
The District's Department of Health has received 17 applications to sell medical marijuana. The deadline for applicants was Tuesday at noon. The city will only award up to five licenses for medical marijuana dispensaries.
In addition to the five retail sites in D.C., there will be up to 10 cultivation sites where the marijuana will be grown. Twenty-eight applicants are vying for those permits. Applications are due Sept. 16.
