September 21, 2017 – The State of Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) released an advisory bulletin today to inform and advise prospective medical marihuana licensees regarding co-location of medical marihuana facilities. The bulletin is for advisory purposes only and is subject to change.
The Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation intends to allow for co-location in a single facility; a potential licensee may apply for – and be granted – the following licenses:
It is the intention of LARA that multiple licenses will be allowed to co-locate in the same facility if the following conditions are met:
When deciding whether to pursue co-location of licenses, potential licensees should take into consideration that there may be additional inspections and/or permits required for co-located licenses. Also, each grower, processor, and provisioning center will require its own separate application, regulatory assessment, and license.
This bulletin does not constitute legal advice and is subject to change. It is intended to be advisory only, in anticipation of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs’ promulgation of emergency rules consistent with statutory requirements. Potential licensees are encouraged to seek legal counsel to ensure their licensure applications and operations comply with the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act and associated administrative rules.
