Licensing Cannabis Image


Promoting diversity and inclusion in the cannabis industry.


The Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) will be charged with issuing licenses for businesses to participate in the adult-use, medical and cannabinoid hemp industries.

To begin accepting applications for the adult-use program, the OCM will need to issue and implement regulations establishing the application process for different license types.

The OCM will actively promote social and economic equity applicants who have been harmed by the prohibition of cannabis for adult-use licenses, establishing a goal of awarding 50% of licenses to social and economic equity applicants. Please continue to monitor the website for updates about licensing and more information about the social and economic equity program.
