Presently, some states including California have promulgated medical cannabis initiatives. The total number of states that have legalized marijuana is thirty-three. However, these states either cannabis for recreational use or for medical use. The initiative is a good idea when considering the huge number of patients that depend on cannabis for treating medical conditions. But this also means that a lot of business opportunities and career opportunities have been created for the people who are interested in joining the medical cannabis industry. Also, there is a chance for big establishments as well as small establishments who are seeking an opportunity to establish retail stores, dispensaries, processing facilities, cultivation houses, testing and manufacturing facilities among others. But it should be known that before anybody can be a part of this industry, the federal and state laws mandated them to obtain medical cannabis business permits.
Furthermore, in most of the states that have legalized cannabis, the application for medical cannabis business permits has been made assessable for some time now. So also, for the states that just passed the bill on the legalization of cannabis, the application procedure has begun or will begin shortly. Lastly, the rule and laws for acquiring licenses and permits differ from one state to another.
