Marijuana Regulatory Agency
For Growers and Processors:
The Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA), MCL 333.27101 et seq., requires grower and processor facility licensees to have at least 2 years’ experience as a caregiver, or have an active employee with such experience. This requirement ends on December 31, 2021. However, a licensed grower or processor must not simultaneously be registered as a caregiver and must not employ a registered caregiver. Thus, the Agency requires the following:
The MMFLA does not prohibit grower and processor facility licensees from being registered as patients under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Program (MMMP), nor does it prohibit such facilities from employing registered patients.
To be eligible for a secure transporter license, an applicant and its investors cannot be registered patients or caregivers. Thus, the Agency requires the following:
For Provisioning Centers and Safety Compliance Facilities:
The MMFLA does not prohibit provisioning center and safety compliance facility licensees from being registered as patients or caregivers under the MMMP, nor does it prohibit such facilities from employing patients or caregivers.
