Michigan’s New Emergency Rules Require Unlicensed Operation of Medical Marihuana Facilities to End on October 31, 2018

The Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) has issued new emergency administrative rules to continue the implementation of the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA). These rules will ensure:

  • Continued access for medical marihuana patients
  • The integrity of the marihuana facilities licensing process
  • A necessary transition to state-licensed medical marihuana safety standards

Under the new rules, proposed medical marihuana facilities that would otherwise require a state operating license under the MMFLA may continue to operate with local approval until October 31, 2018 without impacting the applicant’s eligibility for licensure.More
