LANSING, Mich. – The Marijuana Regulatory Agency will start accepting applications for adult-use marijuana establishments Friday.
Licenses for the sale of recreational marijuana could be awarded in November and December. Because the marijuana will have to be grown and tested before it can be sold, the product likely won’t be on shelves and available for purchase until early 2020.
Some Michigan communities have chosen to not allow recreational marijuana sales.
According to the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, anyone who applies for a state license needs to submit a nonrefundable application fee of $6,000. Additional fees are listed in the table below:
|State License Type||Initial License Fee|
|Class A Marihuana Grower||$4,000|
|Class B Marihuana Grower||$8,000|
|Class C Marihuana Grower||$40,000|
|Excess Marihuana Grower||$40,000|
|Marihuana Secure Transporter||$25,000|
|Marihuana Safety Compliance Facility||$25,000|
|Marihuana Event Organizer||$1,000|
|Temporary Marihuana Event||See Rule 63|
|Designated Consumption Establishment||$1,000|
For temporary marihuana events each marihuana event organizer is expected to pay an initial licensure fee of $500 for each day of the scheduled event. If marijuana is for sale at the event they are expected to pay a $500 fee for each licensee authorized to sell product at the event.
