Although, cannabis has been legalized in the state of California and usage of marijuana is not prohibited in this state. But cannabis dispensaries are yet to open in the state of California. The regulatory system and department for marijuana industry has not been established yet and it may take up to a year before the sale of recreational and medical marijuana starts in this state. The issuance of cannabis dispensary license may start early next year but you have to submit an application before you can obtain the license.
Cannabis dispensary license will be given to individuals before medical dispensary businesses are established in the state. Getting a license is mandatory to start a marijuana business and operate it under the legal framework devised by the authorities. But obtaining a license is not as easy as it sounds. Before you get a state license, you have to get a local license first. A local license means that you must have a good reputation in the local area where you live and want to open up a venture. However, it is within the power of the local authorities to issue the license to whomever they want. You can improve your chances of getting a local and then a state license by complying with all the legal requirements and preparing necessary documentation.
