Compliance is key to your company’s short and long-term success in Michigan’s cannabis industry.
In Michigan, there are comprehensive rules and regulations at both the state and local levels that must be strictly followed in order to obtain—and maintain—your company’s cannabis business license.
As Michigan’s licensing and regulatory regime evolves and matures over time, the rules that apply to state-licensed medical marijuana facilities and adult-use establishments will also change—including the way the rules are interpreted and enforced by the regulators.
For those reasons, it is extremely important that your company’s facility and its business operations meet and exceed the current regulations from the beginning so that your company has the best chance of acquiring a license.
After licensure, it is even more crucial that your company stays up-to-date on proposed rule changes, anticipates how they may affect and impact your business, and adapts your company’s practices accordingly in order to maintain a clean track record of regulatory compliance and protect your company from fines, sanctions, and the possibility of losing your license.
