Lansing, Mich. — The state of Michigan intends to allow large marijuana growers to apply for and be granted multiple licenses in a single location.
The Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation, which is implementing medical marijuana regulations under a new state law, says the guidance issued Thursday is advisory and subject to change. The state intends to let potential licensees apply for multiple “stacked” class C grow licenses.
The class C license will allow growers to grow up to 1,500 marijuana plants.
A five-tiered licensing system is being developed under a 2016 law that further regulates medical marijuana. It will impose a new 3 percent tax on provisioning centers and establish licenses to grow, process, sell, transport or test marijuana.
The state will accept license applications starting Dec. 15.
