Michigan board lets 70 medical pot business reopen

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan is letting about 70 medical marijuana businesses reopen temporarily through March 31 without it being a risk to their licensure.

The state’s medical marijuana licensing board on Wednesday agreed with the recommendation and others proposed by regulators. The move is geared at ensuring patients can still access marijuana at a time a new regulatory system gets off the ground and there are supply shortages.

The temporarily operating facilities had been told to close as of Dec. 31.

The board also agreed to continue to not discipline licensed dispensaries that source their marijuana product through caregivers, under certain conditions. The reprieve also helps licensed growers or processors that buy marijuana from caregivers or temporarily operating facilities.

The board approved five more operating licenses Wednesday, bring the total to 104.
