The National Medical Marijuana Accreditation Organization, LLC (NMMAO) offers state-licensed dispensaries an opportunity to undergo the nation's first and only accreditation specific to medical marijuana dispensaries. NMMAO was formed in recognition of competing and varying state and pending federal regulations of marijuana dispensaries, and provides a three-year base accreditation. Dispensaries meeting the NMMAO accreditation criteria prove a heightened awareness of general healthcare industry standards and quality measurements through documented policies, procedures, processes, and attestations. Accreditation is both a process and a status and reflects the medical marijuana dispensary's commitment to self-evaluation and external review.
