Roughly 50 unlicensed medical cannabis firms in Michigan won another extension to stay open, with a judge ruling they can do so as long as their state license applications are pending.

This is just the latest reprieve for unlicensed MMJ companies in Michigan, which is transitioning to stricter regulations.

Court of Claims Judge Stephen Borrello also ruled that dispensaries can continue to sell untested products from caregivers, despite legal challenges by two licensed growers that allege such supplies are dangerous and are cutting into their sales, the Detroit Free Press reported.
