How long does it take to receive a registry identification card?
MCL 333.26426(c) requires that the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP) approve or deny an application within 15 business days of the date the application is received by the MMMP.
MCL 333.26426(e) and administrative rule 333.113(4) require the MMMP to either issue a registry identification card or a denial letter within five (5) business days of the date the application is approved or denied. Therefore, the MMMP has up to 20 business days from the date an application is received to issue a registry identification card or denial letter. “Issue” means that the MMMP has printed and mailed the registry card or denial letter. The MMMA and the administrative rules for the MMMP can be found on our website at www.michigan.gov/mmp.
Applicants should allow the United States Postal Service adequate time to deliver their registry identification card or denial letter, we recommend 7-10 business days. If you submitted your application more than 5 weeks ago and have not received your registry card or a denial letter, please contact the MMMP at 517-284-8599, option 1.
