About

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.
