Retailer Equity Joint Ventures and Hybrid Retailer Equity Joint Ventures cannot be located within 20 miles of any other EJV that it shares a Producer Backer or Dispensary Facility Backer with, regardless of the EJV’s license type.

 

The 20-mile restriction is only triggered when at least one of the EJVs is a Retailer or Hybrid Retailer, but once triggered, it will apply to an EJV of any license type. For example, a Product Packager EJV and a Retailer EJV that share a common Producer Backer or Dispensary Facility Backer could not be located within 20 miles of each other. But a Product Packager EJV and a Micro-Cultivator EJV that share a common Producer Backer or Dispensary Facility Backer could be located within 20 miles of each other because neither EJV is a Retailer or Hybrid Retailer.

 

The 20-mile radius restriction appears in sections 27 and 145 of Public Act 21-1.
