Curious How It Works? See how our All-In-One Services work.
Per most state laws, in order to open a dispensary, you must be incorporated. Often, that means incorporating as an LLC or Non-Profit corporation. Your Dedicated Associate will determine if it's required, as well as the best company name (it matters, a lot) and help draft the Articles of Organization (including partners in the company, if any) for whatever entity the state requires. They'll also draft IRS Form SS-4 and help you obtain an Employer ID Number (EIN).
Note: The state's standard incorporation fee is not included in the package price. You will be liable for this cost. Usually around $100.
State & City Laws
Your Associate will acquire and translate the confusing jargon for your City, County and State laws into plain and simple English, making it easy to understand exactly what you need to know and do to be in legal compliance with all the laws regarding your marijuana dispensary.
Licensing & Permitting
In order to legally run your business, you’ll need to get licensed on a few levels. Your Associate will contact all state, county and city agencies, acquire the applications and coordinate the submission (Gold only) of the paperwork for State, County and City Business Licenses, Patient & Caregiver Cards (if required), Zoning Permits, and any other licenses or permits required by your city, county and state.
Note: The State, County and City's license and permitting fees are not included in the package price. Your Associate will coordinate the paying of these fees with you.
When applying for licenses & permits as well as bank, credit and all other types of business accounts, a Business Plan, Corporate Bylaws, Banking Resolutions, and other business documents may be required. Your Associate will help draft and coordinate (Gold only) the filing of these documents for you. You will receive copies of the completed documents in Microsoft Word and PDF formats at the end of the process as part of our Business Packet (included in both packages).
Operations Forms & Procedures
Your Associate will draft custom forms and procedures for running your business to the letter of the law. They will cover areas like: how to provide it to customers, process payments, manage your inventory and everything else you’ll need to know and have customers and employees fill out to be legally complaint. These will be included in our Business Packet that will be sent to you at the end of our process of getting you fully licensed and permitted to have your business.
Location Documents & Procedures
Your Associate will ask you to provide them with cities of preference in descending order for where you want your business to be located. They will then ensure your location is compliant with State, County and City laws and then help draft and coordinate (Gold Only) the submission of procedures and documents and anything else required by your state and city to be fully licensed for this area.
Customer Forms & Procedures
As part of our custom-drafted Business Packet that you'll receive at the end of the process, your Associate will show you how to deal with customers from start to finish. They'll covers how to track and verify patients/customers, control possession limits as dictated by state and city laws as well as provide our awesome plug-and-play Microsoft Word documents that may be required, including: Collective Agreements, Customer Check-in forms and any other required documents.
Employee Forms & Procedures
Your Associate will draft full-customized documents and procedures you should have all employees fill out and follow. This will include how to do background checks and ensure that they’re legally allowed to work for you. Keep in mind that one bad employee can get your business shut down. So don’t take this lightly. This will be included in the Business Packet delivered to you at the end of the process.
Record Keeping Procedures
To run a legally complaint business, you’re going to have to keep good records for every aspect of your business. Your Associate will show you how to keep the best, most detailed records that you’ll give your accountant and whoever else is required to receive them at the end of the year. This is included in your Business Packet.
Frequently Asked Questions
Part of the custom-tailored Business Packet will include the most commonly asked questions for how to run your business to the exact letter of the law, written in plain, simple English by your Dedicated Associate. Examples: Can my customers smoke in my store? Can I have a doctor on premises to write prescriptions? Etc.
If you’re served any documents or papers threatening your business at any point in time, your Dedicated Associate will immediately activate our network of local lawyers and organizations to ensure you’re completely protected and safe.
Dedicated Associate available 24/7
Our Dedicated Associates are the absolute best in the business. They have years of experience working ONLY in the marijuana industry, so they know it backwards and forwards. With that amount of experience, there's no surprises. They can handle any situation. And these people are available to you during the whole startup process to answer any questions or concerns you have. No question is too big or small. They will be available to you via direct email. The reason is because communication must be straightforward and black & white between you and your Associate. One mistake of you hearing a possession limit incorrectly over the phone could result in fines, arrest or having your business shut down. With stakes that high, we leave nothing to chance and make your safety and security our highest priority.
Your Dedicated Associate will contact all State, County and City agencies and ensure your documents and procedures are in full and complete compliance with the most up-to-date regulations and then assist in the drafting them based on these conversations with officials. We find, often, that even their own websites contain out-dated information. It’s up to you to ensure you’re adhering to the most current regulations so your licenses and documents get approved and you get to open your business quickly while being totally legally compliant. There's a reason not a single one of our customers has been in trouble - ever.
Dedicated Associate Fields Questions
Not only will your Dedicated Associate research, draft and help with the submission of all required documents and applications mentioned in the previous sections, but they'll also field all calls and questions from the various agencies during the startup process. The various officials and departments are going to ask any and all questions until they're satisfied that this is a legitimate business. Your Dedicated Associate has seen and done it all in this business, so they can field these calls and questions with ease. There's a reason 9 out of 10 Silver Package customers upgrade to Gold during this time. If you can't answer the questions correctly and off the top of your head, your documents may be rejected.
Have the peace of mind knowing your Associate can handle all this for you. Don’t get so far down the path of starting your business to be rejected because you answered something incorrectly. It happens all the time.
Your package is marked for immediate rush service. Typically, our turnaround time is 25 business days for our Silver Package, but your Associate will do it in less than 10 business days as a Gold customer.*
*This does not mean the approval process will be rushed by the city or state, they have standard times, anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks to verify and approve your documents and applications.
