Inyo Supervisors update cannabis business costs

By Deb Murphy

Potential cannabis business applicants now know how much the license application process will cost and what Inyo County’s application looks like.

But, the application floodgates have not opened.

Inyo/Mono Ag Commissioner Nate Reade stressed that point during a March 27 Board of Supervisors meeting.

The Board approved a Life Scan background check and Reade explained he needed to get that process set up through the Sheriff’s office before accepting applications. Cannabis business operators are also required to go through a thorough background check for a state license after obtaining a county license. Reade admitted the redundancy but opted to take the county’s consultant HdL’s advice.

Because of the cap on licenses within each of the identified Inyo districts, Reade didn’t want to issue a license and then have the state invalidate that license.

Applying for a license for all cannabis business activities will cost $2,711.89.

    Into, the way I look at it is maybe it will give the police more time to focus on the “real” dangers. Either that ,or continue on doing figure eights around our bars all night long.

    ….and all the pot smokers thought this was going to be a marijuana free-for-all….not so much,huh ?…like I’ve said all along,if voted to legalize,the “street-vendors ” are going to be in hog-heaven…

      What we’re seeing here is legalization with over regulation. Job security for those on the regulation side. If it was completely decriminalized it eventually would be as exciting as growing tomato plants.
