Michigan regulators announced this week that medical marijuana cultivation license applicants will be allowed to apply for multiple permits at a single location, meaning that they could potentially grow many more plants than originally anticipated.

Under state law, growers can apply for three types of licenses. Class A license holders can grow up to 500 plants, Class B license holders up to 1,000 plants, and Class C up to 1,500 plants, according to Crain’s Detroit Business.

But the state’s Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation will allow growers to apply for “multiple” Class C licenses for a single grow site, regulators announced in a bulletin issued Thursday. The document did not say whether there would be a limit on the number of Class C permits a licensee could receive.

The agency also noted that the advisory is subject to change.
