What is a San Mateo County Cannabis/Marijuana Surety Bond?

For those applying for licensing for their cannabis/marijuana business, a San Mateo County cannabis bond is required as an assurance for payment for the costs of confiscation, storage, clean-up, or abatement of any wastes, including regulatory oversight costs, and/or destruction of Cannabis when such costs are necessitated by a violation or other applicable federal, state, or local law. 

This type of surety bond guarantees to protect the state or municipality (Obligee) if the licensing applicant (Principal) should engage in fraudulent activities as well as protect the safety, health, and welfare of the state residents by controlling, regulating, and taxing such businesses.

How does a San Mateo County Cannabis/Marijuana Surety Bond work?

Principal – the entity applying for the surety bond

Obligee – the state or municipality requiring the surety bond

Surety – the Surety Bond provider

If the Principal performs misconduct or violation, both the Principal and the Surety will be held liable for the Obligee's claims.

Before being settled, the claim will be confirmed by the Surety. The Surety will evaluate the claim to see if it is valid. The Principal will compensate the Surety for the payments made after the Surety has settled the claim.
