An Industry Insider Serving Fellow Business Owners In The Cannabis Industry

Applying For A State Or Municipal Cannabis Business License

The license application process in Michigan is complex, intensive and very time-consuming. The number of licenses available is limited and the competition for those licenses is fierce. To secure a cannabis business license, you must pass an extensive background check and complete a series of steps including:

  • Passing a financial documents compliance review

  • Submitting a business plan with projections for anticipated profits

  • Attending license hearings

  • Passing prelicensure inspections

  • Presenting financial documents showing that you meet capitalization requirements

  • Drafting business operation documents such as standard operating procedures and employment agreements

Without an experienced attorney to guide you through the process, efforts to acquire a license can easily get derailed.
