The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has released 70-pages worth of draft rules for the state’s recreational marijuana system.

The document says that as of 8:30 a.m. on January 4, 2016, the agency will begin accepting applications from those interested in marijuana producer, processor, wholesaler, retail or laboratory licenses.

Applicants must pass a background check, be at least age 21 and must have lived in Oregon for at least two years prior to the date of their application.

No application fees are listed in the document, other than the criminal background check fee of $100. Canopy limits also haven’t yet been determined.

Recreational cannabis businesses can’t be located on federal property, at the same site as a grow location (if the business is something other than a grow location) or at the same location as a liquor store. They also can’t be within 1,000 feet of a school or in an area zoned exclusively for residential use.
