  • Due to the risk from the perspective of the bonding company, Marijuana Bonds are very carefully underwritten and priced accordingly. Part of the cost of this bond will be the time and effort needed to provide the documentation and information the bonding company will need. In all cases, personal credit, personal financials, business financials, and industry experience will be required. Of course, we can typically handle all credit types and financials situations - from excellent to poor - as such those terms vary.
  • Most marijuana surety bonds can be written for 1-5% of the bond amount when applicants meet certain underwriting criteria such as excellent credit, excellent personal and business financials, and excellent industry experience.
  • Additionally, The ProSure Group has been able to secure these bonds without the use of collateral and we have also been also to secure the ability to waive personal indemnity for owners under certain circumstances.
  • Ohio marijuana/cannabis bonds are in place to ensure marijuana businesses follow the rules and regulations set forth under the agreement of their license. Each bond is different, some guarantee the principal (the marijuana business) will pay sales tax and provide accurate record keeping, others guarantee the company will grow and provide enough product, some guarantee the quality and safety of the product, while others guarantee all of these things and more. Speak with your surety professional to gain a better understanding of the marijuana/cannabis bonds’ protections and how that affects you.

  • The Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill 523, effectively legalizing medical marijuana in Ohio on September 8, 2016. The bill not only legalized medical marijuana in the State of Ohio, but also established the basic framework for Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Control Program (MMCP).
  • Three state agencies were given the responsibility of developing, implementing and overseeing the MMCP. The three state agencies and their respective roles are:
    • The Ohio Department of Commerce - is tasked with oversight of the medical marijuana cultivators, processors and testing laboratories in the state. The DoC’s role is also to develop a program that ensures the safety of the public and access to a safe medical product.
    • The State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy - is responsible for overseeing medical marijuana retail dispensaries, the registration of medical marijuana patients and caregivers, the approval of new forms of medical marijuana and coordinating the Medical Marijuana Advisory Committee.
    • The State Medical Board of Ohio - is responsible for certifying physicians to recommend medical marijuana and may add to the list of qualifying conditions for which medical marijuana can be recommended.
  • Chapter 3796 of the Ohio Administrative Code, details the rules and regulations concerning medical marijuana in the State of Ohio.
  • Ohio Medical Marijuana Surety Bonds remain in full force and effect from the effective date until they are cancelled.
