If my municipality has adopted an ordinance that allows medical marihuana facilities but has not adopted an ordinance that complies with section 205 of the MMFLA, what does my timeline look like?

If you are currently operating a medical marijuana facility that was authorized by your local municipality prior to December 15, 2017, you have until February 15, 2018 to submit a full application (step one and step two) and required application fee to be consider for licensure. If an application does not does not apply for a state operating license as prescribed by MMFLA and emergency administrative rules by February 15, 2017 then the temporary operation may be used as a reason for denial of a license as prescribed in the emergency administrative rules.

The department shall issue or deny a state operating license on or before June 15, 2018. An applicant under emergency administrative rule 19 that has been denied licensure, or has not been issued a license will be operating without a license and shall cease any operation. For additional information, refer to the Emergency Administrative Rules, specifically rule 19.
