Michigan approves 24 more medical marijuana licenses

Michigan regulators approved 24 more medical cannabis operating licenses under a new regulatory framework, according to an email sent by state regulators to the media.

That now brings the statewide total of licenses issued to 91.

In late November, regulators said they wouldn’t force existing, unlicensed medical marijuana businesses to close before Dec. 31.

Here’s the breakdown of the newly approved licenses:
  • 45 dispensaries
  • 28 growers
  • 10 processors
  • 4 transporters
  • 4 testing facilities

Dozens of MMJ dispensaries are believed to be still operating in Michigan with local approval while continuing to pursue permanent licenses.
