So, can I vertically integrate?

A:

Yes. But with limits. 

The legislature took a decidedly cautious approach on vertical integration. 

A licensee may only hold a state license in up to two separate license categories, as follows:

Type 1, 1A, 1B, 2, 2A, or 2B licensees may also hold either a Type 6 or 7 state license.

Type 6 or 7 licensees, or a combination thereof, may also hold either a Type 1, 1A, 1B, 2, 2A, or 2B state license.

Type 6 or 7 licensees, or a combination thereof, may also hold a Type 10A state license.

Type 10A licensees may also hold either a Type 6 or 7 state license, or a combination thereof.

Type 1, 1A, 1B, 2, 2A, or 2B licensees, or a combination thereof, may also hold a Type 10A state license.

Type 10A licensees may apply for Type 1, 1A, 1B, 2, 2A, or 2B state license, or a combination thereof.

Type 11 licensees shall apply for a Type 12 state license, but shall not apply for any other type of state licenses

A Type 10A licensee may apply for a Type 6 or 7 state license and hold a 1, 1A, 1B, 2, 2A, 2B, 3, 3A, 3B, 4 or combination thereof if, under the 1, 1A, 1B, 2, 2A, 2B, 3, 3A, 3B, 4 or combination of licenses thereof, no more than four acres of total canopy size of cultivation by the licensee is occurring throughout the state during the period that the respective licenses are valid. All cultivation pursuant to this section shall comply with local ordinances. This paragraph shall become inoperative on January 1, 2026.
