The City of Fresno announced the preliminary approvals for cannabis retail businesses in the city.

On Wednesday, the Office of Cannabis Oversight released a document listing 21 cannabis permits given preliminary approval for retail store fronts.

The announcement comes after the city unveiled the first three retail permits granted under the social equity process. Qualifications include having a past conviction for a cannabis crime or having an immediate family member with a past conviction and meeting low income criteria.
