Sign Up for State Licensing Workshop

Representatives from all three state licensing agencies, the Bureau of Cannabis Control, the Department of Public Health, and the Department of Food and Agriculture, will be presenting at our equity applicant technical assistance workshop re the state licensing process on Wednesday September 26th from 10am-noon at Oakland City Hall, 3rd Floor Council Chambers.


Cultivators, delivery-only dispensaries, distributors, testing laboratories, manufacturers and transporters may apply for cannabis permits. There is no limit on the number of permits that can be issued for those activities.

However, at least half of all permits must be issued to Equity applicants as described below.

  • Equity – Applicants who qualify for fee waivers plus technical and financial assistance based on income level and residential location or cannabis conviction.
  • General – All other applicants. A General applicant who incubates an Equity applicant by providing them with three years of free rent and security measures, has priority over other General applicants.
