Stipulation Agreement and Consent Order with GC Flint

On November 15, 2022, the CRA issued formal complaints against the medical marijuana provisioning center and the adult-use retailer licenses of GC Flint, LLC dba Green Culture and issued orders of summary suspension against each license. On March 20, 2023, to resolve the formal complaints, the CRA entered into a stipulation agreement and consent order with GC Flint. Under the terms of the agreement, GC Flint must serve a minimum six-month suspension with credit for the time the licenses have been summarily suspended.

In addition, the CRA will pursue adding specific individuals and/or supplemental applicants to the new exclusion list in accordance with Administrative Rule 420.704a. The agency has the burden of proving, by a preponderance of the evidence, that sufficient grounds exist for the intended action to exclude an individual from being employed by or being a supplemental applicant of a marijuana business.

The GC Flint licenses will be reinstated when the CRA receives, and issues written approval, of the following:

  • Confirmation that change of ownership applications have been submitted and approved by the CRA to reflect any changes in ownership interest or managerial control in the GC Flint Iicenses or any other licenses in which MJCC dba Jars Cannabis, Jars Ventures 5, LLC, or Jars Holding LLC, is a supplemental applicant or licensee since November 15, 2022.
  • Confirmation that Respondent has employed all new management since November 15, 2022.
  • Destruction of all untagged caregiver product in the presence of – and verified by – a CRA employee.
  • Comprehensive updated standard operating procedures.

    Upon reinstatement, the licenses will be restricted for six months and subject to the following restrictions and conditions:


  • Licensee will conduct an inventory audit and email the results and corresponding point-of-sale system data to the CRA each month.
  • Licensee will verify and record on a daily Iog that its video surveillance system is working and that video for the preceding 30 days is in its possession. Licensee will email the log to the CRA each month.
  • Licensee will pay a fine in the amount of $100,000 within 60 days.

Further details are available in the stipulation agreement and consent order document.
