Virginia’s state panel, which will award the state’s first five medical marijuana licenses, is keeping the process a secret.

The state panel will keep the application review process totally confidential according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The Virginia Board of Pharmacy Chair Rafael Saenz said this week that the 51 applications would be considered in closed session. Regulators had conferred about Virginia’s public-meeting law for 30 minutes before coming to the decision.

The pharmacy board’s executive director, Caroline Juran has said that the attorney general’s office provided advice.

While the presiding committee did release initial application scores, companies weren’t identified by name.
