Community Benefits

Let us know how your business will support the wider community.

Along with a Good Neighbor Policy, you can consider other ways your business will support the community. We will ask about these plans on the application. It may be helpful to think about this now.

Set up an optional compassion program

Only cannabis businesses who have compassion programs may subsidize cannabis products, for qualified medicinal cannabis users.

On the permit application, we will ask you:

  • The populations you plan on serving
  • About how many patients will participate
  • How you will keep records and ensure patient privacy
  • How much of your inventory will be reserved for compassion patients

Outline your equity goals

We want to know how you plan to:

  • Help equity businesses, such as rent-free space and technical help
  • Provide opportunities to people unfairly impacted by the War on Drugs
  • Support San Francisco‚Äôs broader equity goals
