Michigan: Guidance on New Licensee To-Dos During 30 Day Honeymoon Period

Michigan issued an advisory bulletin reminding new licensees of their obligations with regards to marijuana products that are in the current inventory at the time of receiving a license. New licensees may face sanctions or fines if they fail, within 30 days, to (1) enter the inventory into the state’s seed-to-sale tracking system; (2) growers and processors must test marijuana product prior to transfer to a retail dispensary, and (3) retail establishments must obtain a written acknowledgement from patients or caregivers’s prior to selling untested marijuana product. Following the 30 honeymoon period, licensees must destroy all remaining marijuana that does not comply with regulations (i.e., entered into tracking system, tested, etc.)
