On Sept. 13, the Michigan Court of Claims stayed the state Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs ( LARA) rule with respect to unlicensed facilities that had not submitted their Step 2 application by June 2. The full text of the Court’s ruling follows:
“The Honorable Court orders that the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs is immediately enjoined and restrained, directly and indirectly, from treating temporarily operating medical marihuana businesses differently based on whether the business filed a Step 2 application more than 90 days in the past and that Defendant extend the September 15, 2018, deadline to December 15, 2018, for all temporary operating facilities.”
The ruling was issued in the case Montrowe, LLC v Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (Case # 18-000188-MB).
Please check with your legal counsel to determine what steps you should take next if the rule applies to you and you desire to remain open after Sept. 15.
