Social Equity Plan

The LCB will further define the criteria of a social equity plan in rule making. Below is general information about what may be included in the plan as outlined in law:

  • A statement that the applicant qualifies as a social equity applicant;
  • A description of how issuing a cannabis retail license to the applicant will meet social equity goals;
  • The applicants personal or family history with the criminal justice system including any offenses involving cannabis;
  • The composition of the workforce the applicant intends to hire;
  •  Neighborhood characteristics of the location where the applicant intends to operate, focusing especially on disproportionately impacted areas; and
  • Business plans involving partnerships or assistance to organizations or residents with connection to populations with a history of high rates of enforcement of marijuana prohibition.
