Marijuana Enforcement

 Effective March 18, we are open for business but our offices are closed to the public until April 18

As state public health officials are calling for “social distancing,” consistent with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the Marijuana Enforcement Division is adopting measures to minimize exposure between employees and also between employees and the public.

  • Starting Wednesday, March 18 MED business operations will continue and services to the public will remain available, however, all MED office lobbies will not be open to the public. Specifically, MED is providing modified licensing services, outlined on our Licensing webpage.  Other than these adjustments to our licensing processes, it is business as usual at MED.
