When are Cannabis Business License Applications Open in New Jersey

This amendment will take effect on January 1st, 2021. The Cannabis Regulatory Commission, once established, may create additional regulations to make effective the provisions of the amendment.

Types of Cannabis Business Licenses to Become Available in New Jersey

Microgrower License in New Jersey

  • You can apply for a microgrower license type if:
  • Employ no more than 10 employees;
  • Operate a cannabis establishment occupying an area of no more than 2,500 square feet, and in the case of a cannabis grower, grow cannabis on an area no more than 2,500 square feet measured on a horizontal plane and grow above that plane not higher than 24 feet;
  • Possess no more than 1,000 cannabis plants each month, except that a cannabis distributor’s possession of cannabis plants for transportation shall not be subject to this limit;

  • Acquire for retail sale each month, in the case of a cannabis retailer, no more than 1,000 pounds of cannabis in dried form, or the equivalent amount in any other form, or any combination thereof.

Number of Business licenses allowed for the Cannabis industry in New Jersey?

New Jersey didn’t set a statewide capped number of licenses, contrary to many other states in the United States like Illinois and Arizona.

Although it does not have a statewide limit for the number of licenses approved for adult-use businesses, leave it to the cities to say, they may govern their own numbers.

 

Taxes in New Jersey for Cannabis

NJ marijuana taxes will apply the state’s sales tax of 6.625% to recreational cannabis, any additional state sales tax is prohibited.

However, local governments may adopt an ordinance to impose an additional municipal tax on the sale, or any other form of transfer, of cannabis or products created from or which include cannabis.

This municipal tax could be up to 2% on recreational cannabis.

New Jersey Public Question 1

 

New Jersey bills A21/S21 are being highly criticized for their lack of social equity. Under A21/S21 there’s no tax allocation for community reinvestment, no automatic expungement, no definition of ‘equity’ nor designation for licensing, no license expansion of mmj program, no home grow.

New Jersey is one of the top three states for cannabis arrests. With the legislation not yet complete or passed. Licenses may not happen in New Jersey for over a year. 

Home grow in NJ?

  • To Be Determined – so far no.

Social Equity in NJ Cannabis Laws?

  • Bare Minimum Criteria Towards Restorative Justice:
  • Expungement? To be determined 
  • Social Equity Provisions? To be determined
  • Portion of Taxes Allocated to Community? To be determined

Not much has been determined so far, so stay tuned for updates regarding the cannabis regulations in NJ.

Big news for recreational delivery licenses came out of the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) from its monthly public meeting on May 7th. Most significantly, the CCC voted to move forward with recreational delivery-only licenses and delivery endorsements

(delivery endorsements are essentially add-on licenses to existing marijuana businesses).

Applications for the license will open on May 28th, 2020, and for two years will be available exclusively for social equity and economic empowerment applicants.

TAKE NOTE: *The CCC will also use a new “pre-certification” process, in which the CCC does a background check and application review before the applicant receives local approval. *

The goal is to have the CCC’s approval in hand as applicants go to their local municipality for approval.

Applicants must meet all of the general operational requirements for marijuana establishments found in 935 CMR 500.105 of the Adult Use regulations.

In addition to that, Massachusetts imposes special security requirements (935 CMR 500.110(8)) and operational requirements (935 CMR 500.145).

DRIVER AND VEHICLE REQUIREMENTS

 

Staffing Your Vehicle and Training Your Drivers

All vehicles must be staffed with at least two agents, and at least one agent must remain in the vehicle at all times. 935 CMR 500.110(8)(c).

All delivery agents must complete responsible vendor training as required by 935 CMR 500.105(2)(b), which includes training on:

  1. Safely conducting deliveries;
  2. Safe cash handling practices;
  3. Strategies for de-escalating potentially dangerous situations;
  4. Collecting and communicating information to assist in investigations;
  5. Procedures for checking identification;
  6. Indications of impairment;
  7. Notification to Consumers of use of mandatory recording devices; and
  8. Such other areas of training determined by the Commission to be included in a Responsible Vendor Training Program

Agents must report unusual discrepancies in inventory to the CCC and local law enforcement within 24 hours. Agents must also report vehicle accidents, diversions, losses, or other reportable incident within 24 hours. Firearms are strictly prohibited. Under 925 CMR 500.145(1)(f), a vehicle can only have a maximum of $10,000 of marijuana at a time. All deliveries must be tracked using a seed-to-sale SOR designated by the CCC, and deliveries are geographically limited to (1) the licensee’s place of business, and (2) any municipality which allows for retail and/or has notified the CCC that it allows delivery. Unless explicitly authorized by municipal law, deliveries cannot take place outside the window of 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM

 

What Kind of Vehicle Do You Need?

Delivery licensees have unique, additional security requirements under 935 CMR 500.110(8). All vehicles are subject to inspection by the CCC prior to being put in use. Delivery licensees have an obligation to make the CCC aware of their intent to introduce any new vehicles and get them inspected prior to operation.

First, the regulations set forth extensive requirements for security features required on all delivery vehicles. The extensive list of requirements is as follows:

  1. A vehicle security system that includes an exterior alarm;
  2. A secure, locked storage compartment in each vehicle and not easily removable for the purpose of transporting the Marijuana or Marijuana Products;
  3. A secure, locked storage compartment in each vehicle and not easily removable for the purpose of transporting and securing cash used as payment for deliveries of Marijuana or Marijuana Products;
  4. A means of secure communication between each vehicle and the Marijuana Establishment’s dispatching location which shall be capable of being monitored at all times that a vehicle is performing a delivery route. Means of communication shall include:
  5. two-way digital or analog radio (UHF or VHF);
  6. Cellular phone; or
  7. satellite phone.

A global positioning system (GPS) monitoring device that is:

  • Not a mobile device and that is attached to the vehicle at all times that the vehicle contains Marijuana or Marijuana Products; and
  • Monitored by the Delivery-only Licensee or a Marijuana Establishment with a Delivery Endorsement at a fixed location during the transportation of Marijuana or Marijuana Products for the purpose of home delivery with location checks occurring at least every 30 minutes. The Delivery-only Licensee or a Marijuana Establishment with a Delivery Endorsement may delegate monitoring of the GPS to the Third-party Technology Platform Provider with which the Delivery-only Licensee or a Marijuana Establishment with a Delivery Endorsement has a contract, provided that the Delivery-only Licensee or a Marijuana Establishment with a Delivery Endorsement shall be responsible for ensuring that monitoring occurs as required under 935 CMR 500.000.

A video system that includes one or more video cameras in the storage area of the vehicle and one or more video cameras in the driver area of the vehicle and which shall remain operational at all times during the entire transportation process and which shall have:

  • the ability to produce a clear color still photo whether live or recorded; and
  • A date and time stamp embedded in all recordings which shall be synchronized and set correctly at all times and shall not significantly obscure the picture.
  • All security equipment in each vehicle shall be in good working order and shall be inspected and tested at regular intervals, not to exceed 30 calendar days from the previous inspection and test.

 

Registering and Designing Your Transportation Vehicle

All vehicles must be registered as commercial and inspected by the state. The vehicles cannot have any external markings or symbols that indicate the vehicle is being used for marijuana delivery (e.g., no pot leafs), and marijuana products cannot be visible from outside the vehicle. Each vehicle must have a special secure, locked storage compartment for storing marijuana in each vehicle, as well as a separate storage compartment for cash. Drivers have to contact the licensee when arriving at and leaving any delivery, and at least every 30 minutes throughout the trip. Licensees need a separate log for each vehicle, and for each delivery they need to record:

  1. The location of the originating Marijuana Establishment and date and time the vehicle leaves the location;
  2. The mileage of the transporting vehicle at departure from the Marijuana Establishment mileage on arrival at each Consumer destination, and mileage on return to the Marijuana Establishment;
  3. The date and time of departure from the Marijuana Establishment and arrival at each Consumer destination for each delivery; and
  4. An entry indicating the date and time of the last delivery in an order

 

Massachusetts Cannabis Delivery License

 

SECURITY AND RECORDKEEPING REQUIREMENTS

 

Manifests and Sales Records

 

Each cannabis delivery in Massachusetts must have a complete manifest, with a duplicate kept with the licensee and retained for at least one year to be made available to the CCC. The manifests must include:

  • The originating Marijuana Retailer name, address, and License number;
  • The name and License number of the Delivery-only Licensee or a Marijuana Establishment with a Delivery Endorsement performing the home delivery;
  • The names and Marijuana Establishment Agent numbers of the Marijuana Establishment Agents performing the delivery;
  • The Consumer’s name and address;
  • A description of the Marijuana or Marijuana Products being transported, including the weight and form or type of product;
  • Signature lines for the agents who transported the Marijuana or Marijuana Products;
  • A signature line for Consumer who receives the Marijuana or Marijuana Products; and
  • The Delivery-only Licensee or a Marijuana Establishment with a Delivery Endorsement vehicle make, model, and license plate number.

Body Camera Requirements for Massachusetts Cannabis Delivery Licenses

In addition to significant vehicle requirements, delivery drivers (agents) need to have operational body cameras on them at all times when they’re outside of the delivery vehicle. 935 CMR 500.100(8)(b) adds the following requirements for body cameras:

  • The body camera shall record all deliveries.
  • Consumers shall be notified of the use of body cameras to record delivery transactions at the time of order, on the proof of order and by the Marijuana Establishment agent on arrival at the Residence.
  • In addition to providing notice, body cameras shall be displayed conspicuously on the Marijuana Establishment Agent’s person.
  • A Delivery-only Licensee or a Marijuana Establishment with a Delivery Endorsement shall maintain video from body cameras confidentially and protected from disclosure to the full extent allowed by law. The Licensee shall implement data security, records retention, and record destruction policies for body camera video in compliance with applicable federal and state privacy laws, including but not limited to the Driver Privacy Protection Act, 18 USC § 2721, the Massachusetts Identify Theft Act, M.G.L. c. 93H, 201 CMR 17.00: Standards for the Protection of Personal Information of Residents of the Commonwealth, and the Fair Information Practices Act, M.G.L. c. 66A.
  • Video of deliveries shall be retained for a minimum of 30 days, or, with notice to the Delivery-only Licensee or Marijuana Establishment with a Delivery Endorsement, for the duration of an investigation by the Commission or by law enforcement, whichever is longer. To obtain video from a Licensee as part of an investigation, Commission staff shall consult with the Executive Director and to the extent possible, view the video at the place of storage.
  • A Delivery-only Licensee or a Marijuana Establishment with a Delivery Endorsement shall not share or disclose any portion of the information or video footage collected as the result of the use of a body camera pursuant to 935 CMR 500.110(8)(b) to any third party not explicitly authorized by 935 CMR 500.000 to have access to that video footage, subject to the exceptions in 935 CMR 500.110(8)(b)6.a. and b.

A Licensee or Marijuana Establishment shall make video footage available to law enforcement officers acting in his or her official capacity pursuant to a validly issued court order or search warrant demonstrating probable cause.

Nothing in 935 CMR 500.110(8)6. shall prohibit law enforcement from performing a constitutionally valid search or seizure including, but not limited to, circumstances that present an imminent danger to safety, and other exceptional or emergency circumstances where time or opportunity to Become Available for a warrant is lacking.

Types of Cannabis Licenses to Become Available in Michigan

For both the medical marijuana program and recreational marijuana program, the licenses available in Michigan are:

  • Grower License: This license allows selling marijuana to licensed dispensaries and licensed processors. For this type of license, there are three classes (A is a Grower license for 500 marijuana plants, B is a Grower license for 1,000 marijuana plants, and C for 1,500 marijuana plants)
  • Processor: The license includes selling to other licensed processors and dispensaries, processing marijuana and selling it to licensed medical marijuana users.
  • Retailer: With marijuana dispensary license, you can sell medical marijuana and other marijuana products, including plants and seedlings. Retail stores can’t allow consumption of marijuana unless they have a specific license
  • Secure Transporter: License authorizes storage and transportation of marijuana and associated money between facilities.
  • Provisioning Center: License authorizes the sale of marijuana to a registered qualifying patient or registered primary caregiver.
  • Safety compliance facility: License authorizes the facility to receive marijuana from, test marijuana for, and return marijuana to only a marijuana facility or registered primary caregiver.

Michigan Hemp Commercial/Micro Growers License Application Process

Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) is the agency in charge of issuing licenses to cannabis operators. They are using a two step program for cannabis licenses applications in Michigan

Step 1: Pre Qualifications:

  • Allows applicants to begin the application process while still seeking a location for the proposed marijuana facility
  • It starts by filing an Entity/Individual Pre-qualification Packet. This packet must include a passport type photo, a copy of your government-issued ID, and all other supporting documentation
  • It encompasses a full background investigation of the applicant and all supplemental applicants
  • You’ll have to pay a non refundable fee of $6000 at the time of filing to defray the costs associated with the background investigations and fingerprint processing. The application fee must be paid before the application can be processed.

Once completed the Packet and collected all required documentation, submit your pre-qualification packet either in person, by mail, or through LARA’s online application portal.

Step 2: License Application

Where the applicant will identify the specific facility for which they are applying (grower, processor, provisioning center, safety compliance facility, or secure transporter) in the Facility License Application (FLA), and provide information and supporting documentation specific to the license sought. If applying for more than one facility license, a separate FLA will need to be completed.

  • You’ll be required to provide the same information you submitted during the pre-qualification phase, with information regarding the municipality in which you’ll operate
  • Business specifications may include: An estimated open date for your dispensary; Proof of premises ownership or a lease agreement; Estimated gross annual income; A marijuana facility plan; A cannabis retail marketing plan; A cannabis product inventory and recordkeeping plan.

 

Number of licenses allowed for the Cannabis industry in Michigan?

The good thing about applying for a cannabis license in Michigan is that, contrary to many other states in the United States, it does not have a statewide limit for the number of licenses approved neither for medical marijuana businesses nor for adult-use businesses..

The not so good thing about cannabis licenses regulations in Michigan is that local municipalities can choose to ban or limit the number of businesses.

Currently there are around 500 MMJ licenses and 170 recreational cannabis licenses granted in Michigan, but this industry is only getting stronger so we can expect to have a higher number by 2021.

How much does a cannabis License in Michigan cost?

Of course it’ll depend on what type of cannabis license you want to get for your operation. License fees in Michigan could go from $4,000 (the grower class A license), up to $40,000. And they will need to be renewed annually, which includes a fee of similar amount.

What Are the Requirements to be able to Aquire a Cannabis License in Michigan?

The Board had previously set, when the law first passed in 2019, as requirements for dispensary owner’s the following criteria:

  • No felony within 10 years
  • No misdemeanors involving controlled substances within five years
  • No local ordinance violations within five years
  • Must be 21 years old
  • Any past issue with law enforcement or legal violations, not including traffic violations

However, they are currently amending the requirements set in their webpage, which could potentially mean that the are making some changes on the applicability of those wanting to get a Cannabis license in Michigan.

Either way, you should get in touch with an cannabis license lawyer that could assist you into presenting a perfect application

Taxes in Michigan for Cannabis

The state tax requirements in medical marijuana in Michigan is 6% sales and use tax. For recreational cannabis is 10% excise tax plus 6% sales tax.

Social Equity Provisions to be implemented in Montana are not mentioned in the complete text of initiative No. 190.  However, the initiative does demand that a portion of Taxes is allocated to Impacted Communities and allows for expungement of previous cannabis-related convictions to be petitioned

A portion of taxes will go to “funding for substance abuse treatment and prevention, funding of veterans’ programs to offset prior uses of unregulated marijuana in ways that harmed veterans, funding to localities where marijuana is sold to offset the costs associated with marijuana regulation, and funding for the general fund to account for any costs to the state from marijuana use and regulation”

Taxes in Montana for Cannabis

According to the initiative a 20% tax on non- medical marijuana will be established. 10.5% of the tax revenue will go to the state general fund. The rest is dedicated to conservation programs, substance abuse treatment, veterans’ services, healthcare costs, and localities where marijuana is sold.

The remaining would be distributed among community college districts, fire and police departments and other grants or programs that support public health.

Early Applicants Have An Advantage

Inclination is given to early candidates. Roughly 145 licenses are accessible for early candidates. The first of these early candidates incorporate enlisted not-for-profit clinical dispensaries. These candidates can sell clinical and recreational items from a similar office.

This is acceptable, as it won’t double the quantity of actual dispensary areas.

The second round of early candidates will incorporate people who look to work recreational dispensaries in provinces with under two enrolled philanthropic clinical cannabis dispensaries.

After early candidate licenses are given, the office gives more maryjane foundation licenses to qualified candidates. This will be finished by irregular choice. Likewise, the licenses gave will be substantial for a very long time.

What’s more, the division in Arizona will build up 25 “make” licenses, these will help the individuals who need to handle pot yet are not subsidiary with any huge cannabis organizations. Furthermore, a fourth of these licenses will go to regions lacking existing dispensaries inside a 25-mile range.

All things considered, the office will support cannabis permit applications in Arizona that know about the weed business.

ARIZONA CANNABIS REGULATORY STATUS

States along the whole Pacific coast, from Alaska to California, have legitimized both clinical and recreational cannabis. That being the situation, many may ask why in the territory of Arizona, whose western outskirt is not exactly a six-hour drive from the sea shores of Southern California, it is still explicitly unlawful aside from clinical purposes.

The response to that question lies in the way that Arizona citizens have been more reluctant than their waterfront partners to make their ways for cannabis. The last purposeful voting form exertion to eliminate all legitimate limitations on cannabis use and ownership fizzled in 2016.

Cannabis License Application Timeline in Arizona


Presently, how about we take a gander at the cannabis permit application market in Arizona. Inside The Smart and Safe Arizona Act, the Arizona Department of Health and Human Services will be answerable for the guidelines on cannabis guideline. This will incorporate the authorizing of maryjane retail locations and development/creation offices.

With this polling form, the office can issue more than 100 recreational cannabis offices.

The Smart and Safe Arizona Act remembers a cap for the quantity of recreational dispensary licenses that are connected to drug stores. The Department of Health Services expresses that they may give close to one recreational weed permit for each 10 authorized drug stores. These authorized drug stores remember any spot for which medications are sold, apportioned, fabricated, or offered available to be purchased.

With the endorsement of this activity, the office will initially acknowledge permit applications between January 19, 2021, and March 9, 2021. The office will acknowledge licenses from early candidates inside those dates. In view of that, cannabis counseling in Arizona is a need for all candidates. Presently, how about we take a gander at what the necessities are to qualify as an early candidate.

CANNABIS LICENSING OPPORTUNITIES IN ARIZONA

Current cannabis permitting openings in Arizona are in the clinical pot market as it were.

In spite of the fact that citizens keep on opposing state activities that would take into account recreational use, the Arizona Medical Marijuana Certification Program was set up almost 10 years back, and qualifying patients started applying for state recognizable proof cards on April 14, 2011.

Dispensaries in Arizona bargain only in cannabis that is assigned for clinical use, and can either be authorized as single retail stores, or as single offsite areas where cannabis items are developed or made, however are never sold or moved to approved buyers.

Notwithstanding the accessibility of affirmed dispensaries, assigned parental figures and patients can likewise get approval to develop a predetermined number of plants, which must be filled in a completely encased and bolted office.

The Arizona Department of Health doesn’t by and by have a framework that accommodates a lawful cannabis development office that isn’t likewise a dispensary, and the location of the office must be associated with the real dispensary address. Also, the Department of Health may not issue more than one dispensary permit for each ten drug stores enrolled inside the state.

CURRENT CANNABIS DISPENSARY REGISTRY FEES

Current expenses for enlisting dispensaries include:

  • $500 for an underlying or a restoration library recognizable proof card for a dispensary specialist
  • $5,000 for an underlying dispensary enrollment testament
  • $1,000 for a restoration dispensary enlistment authentication
  • $2,500 to change the area of a dispensary or development office

Early Applicants Have An Advantage

Inclination is given to early candidates. Roughly 145 licenses are accessible for early candidates. The first of these early candidates incorporate enlisted not-for-profit clinical dispensaries. These candidates can sell clinical and recreational items from a similar office.

This is acceptable, as it won’t double the quantity of actual dispensary areas.

The second round of early candidates will incorporate people who look to work recreational dispensaries in provinces with under two enrolled philanthropic clinical cannabis dispensaries.

After early candidate licenses are given, the office gives more maryjane foundation licenses to qualified candidates. This will be finished by irregular choice. Likewise, the licenses gave will be substantial for a very long time.

What’s more, the division in Arizona will build up 25 “make” licenses, these will help the individuals who need to handle pot yet are not subsidiary with any huge cannabis organizations. Furthermore, a fourth of these licenses will go to regions lacking existing dispensaries inside a 25-mile range.

All things considered, the office will support cannabis permit applications in Arizona that know about the weed business.
