Medical Cannabis Dispensary (Retailer)
A medical cannabis dispensary sells medical cannabis goods to qualified patients and caregivers at its storefront location. A dispensary must have a licensed physical location open to the public. A licensed dispensary may also deliver cannabis goods to patients in Long Beach.
Currently, the City of Long Beach is not accepting applications for medical cannabis dispensaries or delivery services.
The application period for dispensaries is closed. The application period may be re-opened if (1) a dispensary license is surrendered or revoked or (2) the City determines based on the population of Long Beach that more dispensaries are required pursuant to Long Beach Municipal Code Section 5.90.080.
Dispensary Applicants & Licensees
Pursuant to Long Beach Municipal Code (LBMC) Chapter 5.90 (“Medical Marijuana Businesses”), there are a maximum of thirty two (32) available dispensary licenses that will be issued to conduct medical cannabis dispensary activities in the City of Long Beach.
Applicants for all thirty two (32) available dispensary licenses have been identified and awarded the ability to move forward in the application process.
Applicants that were authorized to move forward in the application process are not guaranteed a license. All other requirements established in the Long Beach Municipal Code and other applicable laws must be met in order to obtain a dispensary license. In the event that an eligible applicant is unable to obtain a license at the proposed location, the City will refer to the Pending/Ineligible List to determine which replacement application may move on to Department Reviews and Inspections. Replacement applications will be selected based upon the order of applications on the Pending/Ineligible list and review of the 1,000 foot dispensary buffer requirement. The Pending/Ineligible list will expire upon that date that the City issues a total of 32 dispensary licenses.
