Cannabis Related Land Uses

This document provides general guidance on the process for establishing certain land uses related to cannabis businesses and is principally focused on compliance with the Planning Code.

All projects are also subject to review and approval by other City Departments and agencies, including the Department of Building Inspection and the Fire Department. Please contact those Departments for information on specific requirements for your business.

Additionally, all cannabis businesses must be permitted by the Office of Cannabis under Article 16 of the Police Code. Please contact the Office of Cannabis prior to any investment to ensure you are eligible to seek a permit and operate a cannabis business in San Francisco.
