1 – First thing is business history with funds to back, the state would like to see that you’ve operated/handled an upstanding business In some capacity prior to owning a dispensary. If you have not operated in that space before, all is not lost, as long as you can show proof of the requested funds to do so and the history of how those funds came about. Where and how did you make your money previously?
2 – Secondly, A clean record! once the MRS has reviewed and are satisfied with your history and financial background, a criminal background check is then required. They will take everything into consideration, the good, the bad and the ugly! You will have to answer to them, as to why you ate the two grapes at the grocery store when you were 9yrs old with your mother! Just kidding but they are VERY thorough.
3 – Third but not necessarily least, you will have to secure city Real estate property or land and have filed for a city license for approval. NOT EASY, Considering a city may only be excepting 4 licenses and you are up against 400 people applying! This is where a lot of prayer comes in to play!
