July 1st doesn’t seem like any action will happen

As of Tuesday, 31 entities have applied for 61 business licenses, and the regulators have begun to review those applications. The review process includes a background check and a 60-day window during which the municipality in which the business hopes to locate must certify that the applicant has met all local requirements.

Executive Director Shawn Collins said Tuesday that the pending stack includes 22 applications to cultivate marijuana, 18 applications for retail licenses, 15 applications to produce marijuana-infused products, three research laboratory applications, two applications from microbusinesses, and one application to transport marijuana.

He said the applications have come in from 40 registered marijuana dispensary companies; three applicants who are part of the commission’s economic empowerment program; and 18 applicants that did not receive priority review status from the commission.
