Licenses For Medical Marijuana Processors
A critical early step for medical marijuana processing operations is to obtain a license. The licensure process is rigorous. Every aspect of a business interested in getting a license will be scrutinized, from ownership and board makeup to tax history to the methodology and chemicals used in the processing operation. Strict regulations must be met and adhered to in order to obtain and maintain a processor license.
If the stringent regulations were not a big enough obstacle, there is also the fact that the number of medical marijuana processor licenses available in Ohio is limited to 40 initially. Not surprisingly, there are far more businesses than that interested in obtaining a license.
Ohio’s regulations are not unique in their complexity. Other states feature similar rules.
Guidance In Obtaining, Maintaining And Protecting A Processor License
Businesses interested in getting a license as well as those that are granted a license will be required to work with a variety of state regulatory agencies. Businesses can benefit from teaming with a lawyer who has a history of successfully working with these agencies, someone who understands how the agencies work and what their procedures are.
