Do I need a permit or license?

All cannabis-related businesses are required to obtain a 420 License to operate inside city limits. A cannabis related business is one that participates in the commercial cultivation, extraction, sale, testing, processing (including harvesting and curing), or manufacture of marijuana products intended for consumption by others.  Please be aware, commercial cannabis related businesses are not permitted in residential homes with the exception of medical marijuana delivery-only businesses (no sales) which are allowed as a home-based business. 

For information on plant limits for personal consumption please contact the State of Montana - Cannabis Control Division
Note: The city does not distinguish between medical and recreational cultivation, sales, manufacturing etc.
