What is the Status of Social Equity Licenses in Arizona?
As of Dec 15, 2021, AZDHS announced there are approximately 1,500 social equity applications that were submitted. We as a team congratulate those who were able to apply and wish you guys the best of luck!
MITA-AZ.Org would thank all of our sponsors for allowing us to provide education and be a resource to all social equity applicants. We would like to also thank all our CannaMentors for donating their time and being a source of information.
MITA’s plan to carry on their social equity education program as the applicants go through the process. The MITA team is planning to help social equity applicants review their operating agreements and escape predatory deals, as well as help, find funding after they are awarded to grant a successful business venture for the applicants. MITA has also identified a lack of support and recognition of the disadvantage given to these applicants by issuing a single recreation license. We plan to stand behind the applicants in fighting for dual licenses at the capital in hopes it will be granted before the lottery process takes place, giving the social equity applicants fair competition with the already existing dispensaries.
