Those wanting to apply for a medical marihuana license can get the applications starting Friday, December 8 by clicking on the link provided.

The application was released today by the Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) in Lansing.

On December 15, LARA will begin accepting online or paper form applications, utilizing a two-step application process for medical marihuana facility licensing:

1. Pre-Qualification
2. License Qualification

The two-step process is for applicants to submit one app if they don't already have a location for a distribution center, and a if they do, they can submit the per-qualification app and the licensing application at the same time.

Here's what to expect from the two applications:
The per-qualification app will include a full background check or the individual or business applying. And before an applicant can complete step one, a $6000 application fee must be paid.

For step two, licensing qualification - this requires information specific to the actual location of the business.

Once an application is turned in, a member of the Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation (BMMR) will be assigned to each applicant and will stay in touch throughout the process.

Final approval can not be given until all requirements in the MMFLA are met.

After License Qualification is completed, the BMMR will present the completed application to the Medical Marihuana Licensing Board (MMLB).

Once approved, an applicant will be required to pay an assessment for each license, then the license will be issued.
