Please Sign SB 51, To Support Cannabis Equity Businesses

SB 51 would authorize the Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) to issue a provisional license for local cannabis equity applicants for retail activities for up to five years, if the applicant meets the requirements of the Department.

Equity programs are geared towards creating an inclusive California cannabis industry and supporting individuals and communities who are linked to populations or neighborhoods, negatively or disproportionately impacted by past cannabis criminalization.

Equity applicants participating in the retail cannabis industry are challenged to meet all the requirements of the DCC in order to obtain an annual license, which include requirements to meet local licensing requirements.
