There are 40 newly licensed medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Michigan but they are facing the possiblity of running out of marijuana from licensed growers.
This could potentially mean that they may have to shut their doors until spring. Under Michigan rules, once the dispensaries get their licenses, they have to buy from licensed growers. They can only sell marijuana grown by caregivers for 30 days after licensing.
So far only 12 marijuana growers have been given licenses in the state but from the time of planting to an actual stable product it can be four to six months. Thr growers began getting licenses in August which means a big supply of the drug won’t be available until 2019.
