How To Open And Run A Cannabis Dispensary In Michigan

MI has finally opened up adult-use licensing to everyone

Michigan was the 10th U.S. state to legalize recreational cannabis, officially opening the door for medical and recreational marijuana retail sales in late 2018. Managed by the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA), the MI cannabis dispensary laws outline all regulations for prospective and existing dispensaries.

In the state of Michigan, medical marijuana dispensaries are referred to as “provisioning centers.” Initially, only dispensaries that had medical marijuana operating licenses were permitted to apply for adult-use licensing. But now, the application process has been opened to everyone, and Michigan’s cannabis retail industry is booming.

If you are interested in opening a cannabis dispensary in Michigan, reliable information will be among your greatest assets. Proper preparation is essential when applying for a MI dispensary license and for succeeding in this highly regulated industry. You must remain compliant with all laws and regulations while operating a cannabis dispensary in Michigan. For example:

  • A dispensary owner is responsible for knowing that recreational cannabis sales can only be made to adults aged 21 and over, while medical marijuana provisioning centers must limit access to licensed MMJ patients.
  • The sale limit is 2.5 ounces of cannabis or 15 grams of cannabis concentrate per person.
