PA: State badging approval. Should we apply now?

Getting Started in Cannabis


Perhaps someone can answer my question. For us folks who are breaking into the cannabis industry and applying to jobs, I'm sure you've also read on job postings: Must be approved by state badging agency to work in cannabis industry.

*Should we apply and take care of this application process now? Or do you have to wait until you are employed by a company?


Ok got it-Thanks, Hannah!

Hannah-Holmgren: Hi Abby,

Great question! This process actually cannot be kickstarted by you; it must be done by your employer. Once a company makes the decision to hire you, they'll go through the process of submitting your information to the PA Department of Health.

You can find a bit more information on our Requirements by State page for PA or on the PA Department of Health website.
