Oops. About nine months into its existence, the Cannabis Control Commission on Tuesday apologized for and began to correct its most public mistake yet — its inadvertent approval of 10 priority certification applications that were supposed to be denied. The CCC has been churning through applications from prospective marijuana businesses seeking to have their license applications reviewed on an expedited basis, but Executive Director Shawn Collins told the commission that 10 of the 146 applications it has approved were actually meant to be rejected. “Upon further review, we’ve identified a number of applicants that had previously been included in a batch for approval that, based on a transcription error, should have been in fact in a batch for denial,” Collins told the CCC. He added, “It is unfortunate and we will absolutely be in touch with each of those applicants to identify this error that did occur.” Collins said the CCC’s staff reviewed the applications and recommended that the commission deny the requests for priority review.
