LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – The Marijuana Regulatory Agency will begin accepting applications for marijuana licensing starting Friday.

“Our team has done a tremendous job preparing for this day and we’re excited to start processing applications,” said MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo.

The agency will have a two-step application process for getting a license.

Applicants do not need to have a medical marijuana state operating license to get a Class A Marijuana Grower, Marijuana Microbusiness, Designated Consumption Establishment, Marijuana Safety Compliance Facility, Marijuana Event Organizer or Temporary Marijuana Event license.

Applicants must have a medical marijuana state operating license to Class B Marijuana Grower, Class C Marijuana Grower, Excess Marijuana Grower, Marijuana Processor, Marijuana Retailer or Marijuana Secure Transporter license.

The Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act was passed by Michigan voters in 2018.
