Minnesota cannabis social-equity verification opens June 24

Aspiring Minnesota business owners can start the social equity verification process on June 24, marking the first step toward potentially securing a cannabis business license in the state’s developing adult-use marijuana program.

Once the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) verifies social equity status, Minnesotans can apply for business licenses when the application window opens July 24, according to an OCM news release.

License winners will be selected through a random lottery later this year.
