With soaring sales and businesses quickly looking to enter the market, the CRC has proposed updated rules which expand the license classes to include wholesalers, distributors, and delivery services. Under these proposed rules, retailers, manufacturers, and wholesalers are required to keep more detailed records, including information on the date of purchase and delivery sale, the cannabis items purchased or sold, and the purchasing or selling entity.
Wholesalers (Class 3 licensees) will be able to purchase usable cannabis and cannabis products from another cannabis wholesaler, cultivator, or manufacturer for the purpose of resale to another wholesaler, manufacturer, or retailer. Wholesalers can also store/warehouse cannabis and transport usable cannabis and cannabis products to a wholesaler, manufacturer, or retailer.
Distributors (Class 4 licensees) can transport unusable and usable cannabis between cultivators and manufacturers and transport usable cannabis and cannabis products between other cannabis establishments. Even more, Distributors can possess and engage in temporary storage of unusable and usable cannabis and cannabis products as necessary to carry out transportation activities.
Delivery services (Class 6 licensees) can purchase or otherwise obtain cannabis items, cannabis paraphernalia, and related supplies from a cannabis retailer after receiving a purchase order from a consumer and presenting it to the cannabis retailer. These services can also transport usable cannabis and cannabis products and paraphernalia, deliver usable cannabis, cannabis products, and paraphernalia to a consumer and return undelivered usable cannabis, cannabis products, and paraphernalia back to its originating cannabis retailer.
