Welcome to the Department of Cannabis Regulation’s new Business, Licensing and Compliance Assistance Program Website. We hope that you will take advantage of the many resources available to you on this platform.
DCR is committed to the mission of the Social Equity Program which is to promote equitable ownership and employment opportunities in the cannabis industry in order to decrease disparities in life outcomes for marginalized communities, and to address the disproportionate impacts of the War on Drugs in those communities.
We invite you to explore and become familiar with the website. It is our commitment to provide equity entrepreneurs and job seekers with relevant programming, resources, business tools and career opportunities required for successful careers. Good Luck to all.
