Could you provide clarification on Excess Marijuana Grower licenses?

To be issued an Excess Marijuana Grower license, you must:

  • Hold five marijuana Grower Class C licenses under the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act (MRTMA)

    AND

  • Hold at least two Grower Class C licenses under the Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA).

    The number of MMFLA Grower Class C licenses held determines the number of Excess marijuana plants allowed. Based on the medical marijuana plant count, a licensee is allowed to grow in increments of 2,000 plants under the Excess Grow License, up to what is allowed on the medical side.

    Examples:

    If a licensee had five Grower Class C licenses under the MRTMA and had:

  • Two Class C Grower licenses under the MMFLA (growing up to 3,000 medical marijuana plants)

    • Under the Excess Grow License, a licensee can grow in increments of 2,000 plants – up to what is allowed on the medical side.

    • In this example, the licensee would be authorized to grow 2,000 marijuana plants under the Excess Grow License.

    • The 2,000 plants authorized to be grown under the Excess Grow License would be in addition to the 10,000 plants authorized to be grown under the five Grower Class C licenses issued under the MRTMA.

  • Three Grower Class C licenses under the MMFLA (growing up to 4,500 medical marijuana plants)

    • Under the Excess Grow License, a licensee can grow in increments of 2,000 plants – up to what is allowed on the medical side.

    • In this example, the licensee would be authorized to grow 4,000 marijuana plants under the Excess Grow License.

    • The 4,000 plants authorized to be grown under the Excess Grow License would be in addition to the 10,000 plants authorized to be grown under the five Grower Class C licenses issued under the MRTMA.
