Connecticut Medical Marijuana Producer Performance Bond

What is a Connecticut Medical Marijuana Bond?

  • A Connecticut Medical Marijuana Bond is a surety bond that is required to be posted by production facilities before they are licensed to produce medical marijuana in the State of Connecticut. In fact, there are two performance bonds required to be posted by production facilities:
    • Connecticut Medical Marijuana Producer Performance Bond For the Construction of a Production Facility - $2,000,000
    • Connecticut Medical Marijuana Producer Performance Bond For the Operation of a Production Facility - $1,500,000
  • The $2,000,000 Connecticut Medical Marijuana Producer Performance Bond For the Construction of a Production Facility must be posted after a production facility has been approved for their license, but before they can begin the cultivation of medical marijuana. The performance bond guarantees that the Principal (Medical Marijuana Producer) will successfully complete the construction of a production facility and will complete said construction in a timely manner.
  • The $1,500,000 Connecticut Medical Marijuana Producer Performance Bond For the Operation of a Production Facility must be posted after the Commissioner of DCP determines that the Principal has timely and successfully met its obligation to construct a production facility. The performance bond guarantees that the Principal will operate the production facility in a manner that provides substantially uninterrupted supply of marijuana to its usual dispensary facility customers.
  • A production facility is defined as a secure, indoor facility where the production of marijuana occurs and that is operated by a person whom the department has issued a producer license. Producers are authorized to cultivate (plant, propagate, grow, harvest) marijuana for palliative use. Production facilities are only authorized to sell marijuana to state licensed dispensary facilities.
