The online application process is currently open for licenses that are unlimited to marijuana growers, processors, transportation, safety compliance and event organizers.
While it’s only part of Detroit’s cannabis industry, Jimmie Caudill of The REEF Dispensary in Detroit said it’s an exciting start to something years in the making.
“It’s a huge stress reliever. That we’ve gotten to this point and being able to submit the application is a huge, huge opportunity,” Caudill said.
The Detroit Department of Civil Rights, Inclusion and Entrepreneurship’s (CRIO) Office of Marijuana Ventures & Entrepreneurship is accepting the applications. Megan Moslimani, director of the office, said Wednesday they were very busy answering questions and helping people.
In a release, Moslimani said, “We are so excited to announce the opening of our Adult-Use Marijuana Licensing program. We are confident and proud of the space that we have carved out for social equity applicants to take part in this billion-dollar industry.”
The Office of Marijuana Ventures & Entrepreneurship will announce when they plan to accept applications from dispensaries, lounges and others that fall under the limited licenses category at a later date.
