Medical Marihuana Licensing
In September 2016, the Michigan Legislature passed and governor signed into law three bills (House Bills 4209, 4827 and 4210) that will create a licensing and regulatory framework for medical marihuana. This regulatory framework must be implemented by December 15, 2017.
The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) is in the beginning stages of establishing this new regulatory structure and is not accepting applications or issuing licenses at this time. LARA recommends interested parties continue to work with their local governments to procure the local licenses and permits required to establish a medical marihuana business.
