A model that should be operational in all states. Great article from Leafly at the end of the week giving a bit of detail on what and how CA plan to run their microbusiness licenses for Cannabis.
A New Licensing Model
First introduced as part of Proposition 64 in relation to adult-use operations, the microbusiness license is now poised to be available to medical marijuana businesses too, courtesy of SB 94. The license would allow small businesses to act as a one-stop-shop; owners could grow cannabis on an area of less than 10,000 square feet, while also acting as distributor, non-volatile manufacturer and retailer.
This is essentially a smaller version of a typical vertical integration model, and can apply to indoor or outdoor cultivation sites, said attorney Habib Bentaleb of Harris Bricken.
“It is supposed to be a nice way for craft cannabis companies to differentiate themselves [from] what will inevitably be large-scale grow cultivations throughout the state,” said Bentaleb, who specializes in cannabis regulation and represents Gray.
