If not everyone will be licensed on day one, is there a priority/phasing scheme for issuing certain types of licenses?

MCRSA and AUMA both have provisions for priority review of applications (medical: BPC 19321, adult use: BPC 26054.2). MCRSA requires that priority be given to applicants that were in good standing with the local jurisdiction and in operation by January 1, 2016. AUMA requires priority be given to applicants that were in compliance with the Compassionate Use Act and its implementing laws before September 1, 2016. Other than those laws, applications will processed as they are received.
