Northern Mariana Islands’ Cannabis Commission has announced the launch of applications for both commercial cannabis licenses and the noncommercial Homegrown Marijuana Registry, according to a press release.
The commission officially adopted the proposed rules and regulations for the program during its June 23 meeting, and will begin accepting the commercial and noncommercial applications on Aug. 4, which marks the official launch of the Commonwealth’s cannabis industry.
Licensed cannabis businesses will be permitted to commercially cultivate, manufacture, store, distribute and sell cannabis to adults 21 and older, as well as allow for onsite consumption at their licensed establishments.
Adults 21 and older may register for a Homegrown Marijuana Registry Card to produce, possess or store cannabis at a household cultivation site for noncommercial purposes.
Applications for both license types are available here.
