Can you be a caregiver and be licensed for a provisioning center?

The Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA), MCL 333.27101 et seq., requires grower and processor facility licensees to have at least 2 years’ experience as a caregiver, or have an active employee with such experience. This requirement ends on December 31, 2021. However, a licensed grower or processor must not simultaneously be registered as a caregiver and must not employ a registered caregiver.

The Department will require upon receiving a license, any employee or person with interest in the business who is also a caregiver must submit the form to cancel caregiver status within 5 business days. If a new employee is a caregiver, that person has 5 business days from their date of hire to submit the form to cancel caregiver status.

The form to withdraw from the caregiver registry program can be found at the Michigan Marijuana Program website.
