LANSING, Mich. (AP) Lansing will open a 30-day window to apply for a license to run a medical marijuana dispensary on November 16. The city clerk’s office says 20 applicants will be conditionally approved after the December 15 deadline. They won’t be given licenses until they get approval from the state. Five more applicants will get conditional approval following a second window. Those dates have not yet been chosen.
Lansing’s medical marijuana ordinance allows for 25 dispensaries or provisioning centers within the city limits. Applications will be judged on several criteria including the number of jobs created, location and business operating experience.
Applications will also be accepted for Safety Compliance, Processor, Secure Transporter and Grower Facility. There is no limit on the number of those licenses that can be approved.
