There are a couple of different business licenses you can choose from when applying for medical marijuana or recreational marijuana license. Here we highlight the Michigan Class A Grower License. 

This grow license type allows up to 100 plants (Adult Use) and/or up to 500 plants (MMFLA Medical). Determining plant count from the MRA

Initial Licensing fees

First, your municipality must “opt-in” by writing an ordinance to allow cannabis growing in their area. The municipal council might include a municipality fee and you must contact them to find out if there are local municipality fees (of up to $5,000 per local license). Then you must pay the State a nonrefundable application fee of $3,000 for a background check from the state of Michigan to make sure that you and/or your business partners qualify as Applicants. Some of this fee is reserved for the Step 2 (Facility) application process.

Capitalization Requirements 

If you are applying for an MMFLA Medical cannabis license the state of Michigan requires that you prove you have sufficient startup funds for the business. Applying for a Class A MMFLA Grower License from the state of Michigan requires you to show not less than $150,000 in accessible capital. This includes at least 25% ($37,500) minimum in liquid assets that are cash or can easily be converted into: cash, CDs, stocks, or bonds.
