Beginning on January 1, 2018, numerous California cities will begin issuing licenses for recreational marijuana businesses.  To help you better understand the application process for the City of San Francisco, we set forth the following update from San Francisco’s Office of Cannabis.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the experienced attorneys at Wendel Rosen who can help you navigate the application process.

Non-MCD cannabis businesses operating in San Francisco must register by November 30, 2017, to be able to apply for 2018 permits.

Medical cannabis dispensaries (MCDs) with an Article 33 permit do not need to register now. But any cultivators, distributors and manufacturers who work with permitted MCDs must register.

Most cannabis businesses who miss the November 30 deadline will have to stop operating and wait until 2019 to apply again.

We know many cannabis businesses are changing right now. In most cases, business registering with the Office of Cannabis will have a chance to update business name, management structure and address after this initial registration period.

If you have already registered, pass this email on to other cannabis businesses. 

Help us spread the word. Ask your contacts in the industry to register by November 30, 2017.
