Grass Roots, 1077 Post Street, San Francisco, CA 94109

In order for MCDs to begin adult-use sales as early as tomorrow, they must first receive a temporary adult-use retailer license from the state. To date, the City has received 31 submissions from MCDs seeking adult-use authorization. These submissions are being reviewed in the order in which they are received by SFDPH, the San Francisco Police Department, and the Office of Cannabis. These agencies will continue their review of MCD submissions to ensure retailers receive authorization once they meet all the requirements of Section 3322 of the San Francisco Health Code.

We anticipate working together with retailers to ensure that consumers are given information about the safe consumption of the products, so that the transition goes smoothly and successfully for everyone.”

“The City has been working diligently and swiftly to move the cannabis industry to a regulated space so that our small businesses can be in compliance with state and local law – laws that are meant to better protect our communities and consumers. Today marks an important transition in our endeavors, and I appreciate these retailers’ commitment to being good neighbors and to creating a safer and more equitable environment in San Francisco.”
