Understanding New York Cannabis Regulations and the Application Process

The OCM published the final cannabis regulations on September 12th, 2023. They also published a sample of what the application will look like. Fortunately, for applicants, the process was significantly simplified in comparison to the earlier regulations. No plans or procedures are required. It’s a very long application, but most of the questions being asked are easy to answer and only possible to answer if you are the applicant yourself. 

We recommend you fill out and submit your own application since you are personally legally responsible for everything it contains. After you are operational, you can expect the OCM or CCB to require an operational plan and various procedures, probably as part of the site inspection process. That’s where we can help you.
