About Cannabis in Michigan

The Michigan Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP) wasted no time getting patients the relief they needed once the state legalized prescribed cannabis in 2008 of the ‘Michigan Medical Marihuana Act’. Then in 2019, the Great Lake State legalized adult-use cannabis, with retail sales beginning in December of that year. Since then, there’s been a multiple million-dollar difference in state finances, thanks to both medical and recreational marijuana sales.

Since legalization, Michigan’s cannabis industry has boomed. Currently, Michigan hosts over 237,700 registered medical marijuana patients and houses around 484 state-licensed dispensaries.

According to the state’s Cannabis Regulatory Agency, Michigan brought in about $325 million in tax revenue from medical and recreational sales in 2022, through a 10% excise tax and a 6% sales tax.

 

Qualifying Conditions for Medical Marijuana Registration in Michigan

According to the Marijuana Regulatory Agency, Michigan has more than a dozen conditions that qualify residents for a medical marijuana card. The list includes the following debilitating medical conditions: 

Michigan also considers “chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its treatment that produces 1 or more of the following”:

Process to Apply for a Michigan Medical Marijuana Card

Along with having one or more of the conditions, a qualifying patient 18 years of age or older that applies for a Michigan medical marijuana card must also prove their residency with a valid driver’s license or state identification card.

Once you have seen the Veriheal-provided medical marijuana doctor and have been approved, you can begin the application to register for the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP) with the  Marijuana Regulatory Agency. 

During the application process, you will need to verify your address and submit proof of Michigan residency after creating an online account. Acceptable forms for proof of residency include a state driver’s license number or personal identification (PID), or a signed Michigan voter registration. If using your voter registration, then you’ll also need to provide an additional valid government-issued document with your name and birthdate. 

You will also need to provide the Michigan physician license number, your physician certification, and pay the $40 fee for the state application, which must be renewed annually at the same cost. If a patient has Medicaid or receives SSI, they are eligible for a reduced card cost of $25 annually.

Caregiver Information for Michigan

A primary caregiver, like the patient, must first prove Michigan residency before applying for a card. Michigan accepts either a current driver’s license or state identification card as adequate proof. Expired forms of identification are not accepted. Additionally, the caregiver must be added to the patient’s registration to be considered. 

Lastly, a primary caregiver must be at least 21-years-old and not have a felony conviction to be able to assist a patient in the medical cannabis program. The cost for a caregiver card is $40, recently reduced from $60 in 2019. Caregivers are not required to pay for a criminal background check.

Possession and Cultivation of Medical Marijuana in Michigan

In Michigan, the state allows any adult to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana on their person, with up to 15 grams of it being marijuana concentrate. Additionally, a resident is allowed to possess up to 10 ounces of cannabis for medical use at their residence but any amount over 2.5 ounces must be kept in a container until use. “Possession of more than 2.5 ounces of marijuana and up to 5.0 ounces of marijuana is a civil infraction punishable by a maximum fine of $500 and forfeiture of the marijuana for a first offense,” according to the state. Furthermore, the state of Michigan mandates that “an adult may transfer up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana to another adult as long as there is no remuneration and the transfer is not advertised or promoted to the public.” 

Michigan now allows citizens to grow marijuana even if they are not medical marijuana cardholders. Adults 21-years-old or older may now legally grow up to 12 plants.
