The state of Michigan may soon have a facility that not only grows medical marijuana but also processes it and sells it.
According to the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), a new medical marijuana facility that is licensed by the state will allow the growing, processing, and selling of medical marijuana all at one location.
LARA announced this week that it had intended to allow multiple licenses to operate out of one facility if these following conditions are met:
The Department authorizes the licensees to operate at the same location.
The facility must have separate working areas, entrances, exits, point of sale operations and record keeping systems in place for each license.
The co-location is in keeping with local ordinance or zoning regulations.
The licensees comply with all local and state regulations for building inspection, fire safety and public health standards.
It was last year that the legislature passed legislation to legalize and regular medical marijuana dispensaries.
According to the department, the conditions can be subject to change.
Michigan’s new Medical Marijuana Licensing Board will begin accepting applications for medical marijuana facilities on Dec. 15.
