Beginning December 8, 2022, existing medical facilities (Cultivation, Manufacturing, and Dispensary) may begin submitting requests to convert to a comprehensive facility license. This process can be completed through creation/submission of a business update application within the electronic registration system and selection of the statement “I would like to request to convert from a medical license to a comprehensive license.” As part of the conversion request, facilities are required to provide the following:

Within the application, licensees must attest that the individual submitting the request is authorized to submit the conversion request on behalf of the licensee and upload the following documentation:

  1. A plan to promote and encourage participation in the regulated marijuana industry by people from communities that have been disproportionately impacted by marijuana prohibition.
  2. A plan which explains how the licensee will serve both the medical and adult-use markets, while maintaining adequate supply at a reasonable cost to qualifying patients.
    A conversion fee payment of $2,000.00.

Additional information and instructions on how to complete and submit an application for conversion and the avenue for licensees to make payment will be posted to the website by December 8.
