Michigan regulators said they would begin accepting adult-use cannabis business license applications as early as September, nearly three months before the statutory deadline.

They did not, however, give a timeline for issuing licenses or starting sales, according to MLive.com.

The regulator comments came as Michigan transferred marijuana licensing from a board to state staff, per a previous executive order by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

The new Marijuana Regulatory Agency will oversee licensing for medical and recreational marijuana.
