Some 35 marijuana growers and processors have a state license and about an equal number are going through the final steps to be licensed, according to the state Liquor Control Board.
A much larger group, more than 2,200, are still under investigation.
And another 640 applications haven't yet been assigned to an investigator. They are sitting in a queue waiting for a spot to open up on an investigator's docket.
The liquor board received an update from staff this week on the latest numbers.
Eighteen investigators are doing the vetting, each handling more than 120 cases.
That includes investigators examining applications for retail licenses, which were ranked in a lottery. More than 150 retail store applications have been assigned to investigators so far.
There were roughly 7,000 marijuana applications total - but many fewer applicants, since some submitted multiple applications. Others didn't make it through an initial vetting process or were put on hold because applicants' plans changed or fell through.
