Applications for Minnehaha County’s first marijuana dispensary opened earlier this week, according to a press release.
The county began accepting applications for a medical cannabis license on Monday. The tentative deadline to turn in applications is Dec. 13, according to Ben Kyte, county auditor, at last Tuesday’s county commission meeting.
Applications are required to be handed in person at Minnehaha County Auditor’s office. County commissioners voted on capping the number of licenses the county will issue to one, after lengthy debate on concerns with having more than one marijuana dispensary in the county.
Each application must have the following:
A document containing the legal business name, the business’s primary contact name, email address and phone number.A non-refundable $50.00 publishing fee;A non-refundable application fee of $5,000.00; andAn Initial License Fee of $100,000.00. The Initial License Fee is refundable to those applicants that are not awarded a medical cannabis license.
