Applications opening soon for Kentucky medical cannabis business licensing

Governor Andy Beshear has recently signed a bill into law that allows businesses in Kentucky to obtain medical cannabis licenses. The application process for business licenses will be open from July 1 to August 31. The types of business licenses available include cultivator, processor, safety compliance facility, and dispensary. The state officials have released a map of the program’s 11 medical cannabis regions for licensing dispensaries.

The initial allocation of medical cannabis business licenses will be done through a lottery system. However, there will not be a lottery system for the allocation of licenses for Safety Compliance Facilities, as there is no initial limitation on the number of those licenses. For more information on the Kentucky Medical Cannabis Program and how to apply for a business license, you can visit the program’s website.
