Business Change Applications
Marijuana and Medical facility licensees must apply for and obtain the department’s approval before they may make certain changes to their ownership or facility location, as outlined in 19 CSR 100-1.100.
Licensees seeking to apply for a change pursuant to 19 CSR 100-1.100, must remit all required administrative and processing fees at the time of application. Licensees can remit payment at https://magic.collectorsolutions.com/magic-ui/Login/mo-health-senior-serv, and upload their payment receipt with their change request. The current fee schedule can be accessed at https://health.mo.gov/safety/cannabis/fees.php.
General Instructions and Considerations
Licensees should complete the appropriate Business Change Application Checklist below. All documents, including the completed checklist, should be uploaded to the online registry portal.
- Change the Licensee’s Facility Location
- Changes that Would Result in an Individual Becoming an Owner of the Licensed Entity Who Was Not Previously an Owner
- Change of Overall Ownership Interests of Fifty Percent (50%) or More from the Last Approved Ownership of the Licensee
- Transfer a License to a Different Entity with the Same Ownership
- Full Asset Transfer of License to Different Entity (Licensee Checklist)
- Full Asset Transfer of License to Different Entity (Transferee Checklist)
The department will deny Business Change Applications with missing or incomplete payments and/or documentation. The documents and information outlined in the checklist are the minimum required to verify the proposed change complies with all standards for licensure in Article XIV and 19 CSR 100-1.
Considering the uniqueness of each request, the department cannot anticipate questions that might arise from the documentation submitted or the need for additional documentation. Pursuant to 19 CSR 100-1.030, licensed or certified entities must provide documents or records requested within seven (7) calendar days of the department issuing the request unless additional time is requested and granted. If documents are not submitted within the timeframe provided, or found to be incomplete, the business change application will be denied and the licensee may submit a new change request and payment when the licensee is ready to provide all needed information.
Business change applications will be approved if the request contains all of the documents, fees, and information required by 19 CSR 100-1, and the resulting change does not violate any provision of this chapter or Article XIV. If the department determines that an applicant has provided false or misleading information in the application, including applications for change, the license will be revoked or the department may impose other remedies not inconsistent with 19 CSR 100-1 or Article XIV.
