Mt. Pleasant gets first two applications for Medical Marijuana licenses

Posted by Sagar Satapathy on October 10, 2018.

Mt. Pleasant received first two applications for local medical marijuana licenses after it began accepting applications on Monday, Oct. 1.

Both the applications, which the city has received, are from Green Bronco LLC, of Rochester Hills. They have sought conditional approval for provisioning centers at two locations: 1318 E. Pickard and 1322 E. Pickard.

As per the new ordinance, which was approved earlier this year, only three provisioning centers will be allowed across the city and they will allow up to five Class A growers (500 plants) and up to three Class B or C growers (1,000 and 1,500 plants).

Any business can apply for the annual city license with a fee of $5,000, which is refundable to those who do not receive final authorization from the city to operate. The application fee is $200 and is non-refundable.

The applicants can apply till Feb. 1 next year after which the city clerk’s office will review the applications and send the conditional approval.

If the city receives more than the allowed number of applications then it will hold a lottery to select the eligible applicants.  

The city is posting a list of applicants at its website and the list will be updated weekly.

As per the guidelines to grant the official license to the applicants, the city requires all applicants, for all of the business types, to already have Phase 1 approval from the state. Then a business has to receive a special use permit from the city and Phase 2 site location approval from the state after receiving the conditional approval from the city.
