More than $1 million will be spent by the state to oversee the medical marijuana program over the next two years. The program is expected to raise $1.6 million during the 2017-19 budget cycle that begins on July 1. The program is estimated to cost $3.2 million in the following two-year budget cycle and would be self-supported through fees to patients, approved growers and dispensaries, health officials said. The first Compassionate Care Centers are expected to open in January 2018.
