Massachusetts Marijuana Surety Bond

To become a licensed marijuana establishment in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, an applicant must provide a surety bond. The surety bond requirements are mandated in 935 CMR 500.105(P) and apply to all types of marijuana licenses, including marijuana cultivator, manufacturing, and retail (brick and mortar) licenses. Marijuana surety bonds in Massachusetts serve as guarantees to the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) that the licensure applicant will maintain sufficient funds to dismantle their marijuana establishment if necessary. The ProSure Group writes marijuana establishment bonds in Massachusetts for as low as 1 percent of the bond amount. Contact us to request a free, no-obligation quote!


Essentially, a marijuana surety bond is an agreement made among three parties: the principal, obligee, and surety. In Massachusetts, the bond’s principal is the marijuana establishment, the obligee is the Marijuana Regulation Fund, and the surety is The ProSure Group. The bond is a financial guarantee to the CCC that, in exchange for licensure, the principal will maintain enough funds to eradicate their marijuana products if their establishment closes down. In case the principal fails in their obligations under the license agreement, the surety pays the Marijuana Regulation Fund for the principal in exchange for the latter reimbursing the surety.

The amount of a marijuana establishment bond in Massachusetts is equal to each applicant’s annual license fee. License fees vary, however, according to the type (and, sometimes, the size) of the marijuana establishment. Here’s an overview of the marijuana licenses and corresponding surety bond amounts in Massachusetts. (Remember that we charge only a small percentage of each bond amount.)
