Department of Cannabis Control requests stakeholder input on equity fee waiver and deferral regulations

The Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) is requesting stakeholder input and feedback on the development of equity fee waiver and deferral regulations. During the equity fee waiver program development process, DCC received feedback from stakeholders, including equity businesses and the legislature, signaling strong interest in a more robust stakeholder engagement and input process. To implement this, the DCC will hold an informational session for the public. This session will be held on:

April 27, 2022 at 11 a.m.

DCC Equity Fee Waiver and Deferral Stakeholder Input Session (WebEx)

The goal of this session is:

  • To engage stakeholders in the early development of the program
  • To ensure stakeholders have meaningful opportunity to shape the program
  • To thoroughly vet concepts for the program
  • To ensure the program supports the state’s goals for an equitable cannabis market

The DCC has developed a video that describes the fee deferral concepts in detail. For stakeholders that are unavailable to attend the informational session, they can view the video here.

After the information session, the DCC will accept feedback in writing through May 2, 2022.
