Michigan urged to extend Sept. 15 deadline for medical pot businesses
DETROIT – A group of 10 lawmakers and officials in two cities have taken up the cause of medical marijuana businesses by asking Gov. Rick Snyder to extend a Sept. 15 deadline for the businesses to either get licensed by the state or shut down.
The deadline has already been extended twice by the state Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs because the process for getting a license to grow, transport, test and sell medical marijuana in the state is taking so long.
Since the state Legislature passed the law regulating and taxing the medical marijuana industry in December 2016, and LARA began accepting applications for licenses in five categories on Dec. 15, 2017, the state Medical Marijuana Licensing Board has accepted 637 applications for licenses, but only approved 16.
