The state license regulatory agency began accepting applications on Friday from medical marijuana growers and dispensers, including one for a 15,000-square-foot production facility in a city-owned factory in Middletown.
Connecticut's final medical marijuana regulations took effect on Sept. 6 and the state Department of Consumer Protection posted on its website applications for both medical marijuana producer and dispensary facility licenses.
For producers, the DCP charges a $25,000 non-refundable application fee and $75,000 license fee, with renewals at $75,000. Dispensaries application fees are $1,000, registration, $5,000; with renewals at $5,000. All funds are non-refundable.
In August, Middletown's common council became the second municipality in Connecticut to green-light a lease for a medical marijuana grow house to be built in the former Remington Rand warehouse in the north end.
The lease with Fairfield-based Greenbelt Management at 180 Johnson St., is contingent on the firm being awarded one of the three to 10 licenses to be issued by the DCP. Greenbelt will also pay $25,000 to the city of Middletown as a non-refundable lease fee.
Principal partner of Greenbelt Jason Nickerson says provided his company is awarded a producer's license, Nickerson says, construction and security installation at the Remington Rand facility will begin in earnest.
