Starting on December 15, 2017, the State of Michigan is going to accept applications for Provisioning Center (Dispensary) licenses, grower licenses, and secured transporter licenses. Each of the licenses will have different qualifications and standards for applying.
There are a lot of misconceptions out there about the licensing process. First, it is not as simple as submitting the application forms. The State has a very strict list of requirements that must be met, including a completed criminal background check, and financial funding standards that must be met depending on the type and class of license that you are applying to receive. Each license has different classes and different qualifications. To determine if you are eligible for any of the available licenses, set up an appointment and we can discuss your individual situation.
The State has sent a number of notices regarding the upcoming licenses. A person can apply for and receive multiple licenses. One person may operate conjointly a Provisioning Center (Dispensary), grow operation and secured transportation operation from the same location. Again, the process of applying for and potentially obtaining any one of these licenses, let alone multiple licenses is not a simple process. The complexities are too substantial to try and summarize here. Not only are there a number of hurdles that must be overcome as part of the application process, there are substantial regulations to ensure compliance with the law after the application is obtained, along with potential land use and zoning issues for the facilities themselves. We can help guide you through the process and help to ensure that you have the best chance of getting approved.
