Cannabis Business Licensing in Michigan

New legislation has created a structure for the licensing and operating of dispensaries or “provisioning centers.” The Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) adheres to a two-step application process for licensing, consisting of prequalification and review. Prequalification requires submission of application materials, background checks and payment of application fees. Review of the intended retail establishment includes an on-site inspection and payment of the licensing fees once approved.
