- marijuana retailer
- marijuana processor
- class B marijuana grower
- class C marijuana grower

The Education and Outreach Session will highlight all the adult-use licenses that will be available to any applicant beginning on March 1, 2021. The MRA Enforcement Section will also be in attendance to provide information on the required inspections of marijuana establishments.
Representatives from the MRA’s social equity team and Enforcement Section will be holding a question and answer session following their presentations.
