Los Angeles County Cannabis Retail Licensing Attorney

Cannabis retail licensing has different legal requirements than manufacturing before you can get regulatory approval for your business. These rules must be strictly followed, and there may be different regulations depending on the jurisdiction. Here are some of the steps that you must take in the process:

  • Form your business entity and designate control persons
  • Draft your policies and procedures
  • Apply for a license
  • Setting up a legal banking arrangement to deposit your business proceeds

California Marijuana Retail Licenses

There are three different types of retail licenses in California. They are:

  • Type 10 Retailer License – These businesses sell and deliver cannabis products to customers.
  • Type 9 Non-Storefront License – These businesses sell cannabis products but do not have a storefront.
  • Type 12 Microbusiness License – This is for smaller businesses that may grow, sell, or distribute.

When you are applying for a retail business, the state will want a lot of information. They are rightfully concerned about who you will sell to and where you will conduct business. California will want to know all about your business every year before they give you a license.

Your cannabis retail business will likely require a significant investment to bring into being between regulatory requirements and the physical space to start your business. With that in mind, you want to do it the right way to ensure that your money is well-spent. A knowledgeable attorney can advise you on the most effective legal entity and the state’s myriad of marijuana laws.
