Your toolbox of regulations, licensing activity, insights, and news for the Michigan cannabis industry

State Regulations:

Medical marijuana was legalized in Michigan in 2008. The state is currently issuing state licenses under newly reformed laws. Local governments may enact anti-medical marijuana ordinances and require marijuana businesses to go through a permitting process. License applicants cannot obtain a state license without also obtaining local permits.

A recreational ballot measure was recently passed by voters in 2018.
