When I decided to sell legitimate marijuana, I had to file for an application to grow and sell the cannabis plants.
- I was already growing and selling cannabis at the time, but I wanted to run a legitimate business.
I was tired of worrying about the police and the FBI. The end of the year was coming soon and then it would be time for the laws to change. I wanted to be ready, so I contacted a couple of people to help with the process. One person referred me to an application preparation service that consults on these projects. They helped me fill out all of the paperwork and didn’t charge me anything. They also gave me some interesting reading materials that were helpful. The booklet listed several different companies to help me with advertising and packaging. When I filled out the paperwork and we sent it to the state, the application preparation service warned me that it was probably going to take six or eight weeks before I would hear anything at all. Since it was getting close to the end of the year, I was worried that I wouldn’t have my licensing before January 1st. I contacted the state approval board on December 16th and they told me that my application was still being processed. Thank goodness I received the finalization and licensing in the mail on the 28th. It makes me wonder if they didn’t even look at my application until I called on the 16th. It was oddly strange how the time frame seemed to coincide.
