What Cities Will Allow Marijuana Businesses?

The Michigan Marijuana Facilities Licensing Act allows for communities to decide for themselves whether the allow marijuana businesses and which types of businesses. The communities then license the types of businesses.

Different Types of Marijuana Business Licenses

There are several different kinds of licenses:

Growing: License A – 500 plants, License B – 1,000 plants, License C – 1,5000 plants

Dispensaries – referred to as provisioning centers

Secure Transporters – they do what it sounds like

Processing Centers – Makes edibles

Safety Compliance Centers – Makes sure the weed is top notch
