Local Permitting

Local cannabis and hemp permitting processes are as varied as the hundreds of City and County governments that develop cannabis business permitting and operating rules within their jurisdictions.  ALG Strategies experts will lead you through the maze with our expertise of how local jurisdiction permitting processes work.  We apply this deep knowledge to your advantage so that you meet critical deadlines and obtain your local permit as quickly as possible.

Depending on your local jurisdiction, you may need one or all of the following permits:

  • Conditional Use Permit
  • Cannabis Operating Permit
  • Business License
  • Owner and Employee Background Checks
  • Cannabis Tax Permit
  • State Licensing

In order to obtain a state license, you must have a property and a local permit first. In many cases, we can apply for a state license even before your local permit is issued.  ALG Strategies is expert in obtaining a state license as quickly as possible.
