Temporary Cannabis Licenses Expire April 30
Temporary Cannabis Licenses Expire April 30 if their effective date is January 1, 2018, effective date will expire in less than a week. If a license misses the submission deadline for an annual license, they will be required to shut down until an annual license is
Temporary licenses for retailers, distributors, microbusinesses, testing laboratories and cannabis event organizers that were issued with an effective date of January 1, 2018, will expire on April 30, 2018.
Temporary licenses may be extended for 90-day periods if the licensee submits a complete annual license application before the expiration date.
To submit a completed annual license application, you must submit documents as requested for each component of the application. After the Bureau receives your completed application, the Bureau may extend your temporary license.
The Bureau will then perform a substantive review of the documents provided as part of the application to determine if all requirements are met. If the Bureau determines that the documentation is insufficient, you will be notified by the Bureau.
No extensions will be granted to temporary licensees who do not submit an annual license application prior to the expiration date on their license.
If the temporary license expires, the business will be required to cease operations until an annual license has been issued, as operating a commercial cannabis business without an active state license is a violation of the law.
Each temporary application that was issued must have a separate annual application submitted to the Bureau.
