• Cannabis dispensary cannot be located within a 1,500 foot radius of another cannabis dispensary.
• Cannabis establishment may not share office space with or refer patients to a practitioner.
• Dispensary can only make sales to cardholders inside the dispensary; drive-throughs, curbside delivery or other delivery outside the premises of the dispensary are prohibited.
• MS Department of Health (MDOH)is designated to regulate advertising, signage, and displays; sign permits are still required through the city after MDOH approval.
• Cannabis cultivation facilities, processing facilities, disposal entities, and transportation entities are allowed within A, CB, RB, and I zonings… must have a license with MDOH before submitting for a certificate of occupancy with the city… cultivation, harvesting, processing and packaging of medical cannabis must take place in an enclosed, locked and secure facility, and meet city development standards.
