RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Nearly 50 medical cannabis companies are pursuing five licenses to operate in Virginia.           

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports the state has received 49 applications. Virginia plans to hand out licenses to dispense medical cannabis oil in the state's five health services areas.           

The applications require a $10,000 filing fee.
