    microbusiness questions...?

    Can you get the felony set aside? I got my felony set aside a few years ago and was then able to be a caregiver. Prior to that I had to hide behind my wife being the caregiver. It was a pretty easy process and in all, I didn’t pay an attorney to help me with just followed the steps mandated by the state. Everyone at the courthouse even the judge were super helpful and supportive.

    Yes, even though the backers of prop 1 made it out like a micro business was for the “little guy”, the “mom and pop” ect. cannabis is still a schedule 1 drug and will be treated as such by the state. If you couldn’t afford a class A med license or couldn’t clear the financial and criminal background checks chances are you will not be able to clear the hurdles for a micro license. One example, for a med grow you need a co2 alarm/mitigation system in place to protect the safety of employees. Same thing will be true for a micro grow licensee. This is just one of many expensive stipulations the state is putting in place not too mention seed to sale tracking, pesticide testing ect.

    The $6000 application fee you speak of is for a med license. The micro license will be a rec license. LARA will be charged with coming up with rules and regulations for the rec side of things and they haven’t done that yet. It will be a while before any solid info is known. One thing we do know is the state has a year to come up with applications for rec growers.
  4. All depends on the shop. A lot of shops have trusted vendors they have been dealing with for years and are not looking for new vendors. Some of the new shops need new vendors as they don’t have track records with established vendors. As far as how much they purchase I guess it depends on the shop. Sounds like some will only take 15 ounces while some will take multiple pounds at a time. And no none of this is technically legal for a caregiver just as it hasn’t been for the past ten years but it’s been going on and it will continue to go on. I would say you would have one hell of a defense in front of a jury at this point if charged. As far as using proceeds to capitalize your mmfla license? Doubtful at this point but with a new friendly governor that could change. As of now applicants using profit from the mmmp are being denied by the mmfla licensing board.

    How to become a Licensed Vendor

    Of course you can drop pounds, just like always lol. It’s still illegal but so is selling to anyone that is not your direct patient i.e. a shop. As a patient or caregiver you are bound by the MMMA not the MMFLA.

    How to become a Licensed Vendor

    You need to get a MMFLA growers license.

    Anyone seen this?

    Yes but only for patients with no caregiver.
  8. Always great to hear of these victories.

    If Rec Pot Becomes Legal, what about MM

    For customers the retail price of medical cannabis will be far cheaper without the additional taxes that will be placed on rec cannabis. In fact if the rec initiative passes the 3% tax on medical goes away so medical should get a tad cheaper.
  10. How does Professional Caregiver sound? Nobody ever wanted their meds coming from a hack in a basement. No, the caregivers that spent the coin to get a real grow room that had adequate environmental control is what was preferred. In order to get the $30k plus to build such a room well they needed to be compensated somehow. Heros, each and every one of them.
  11. Well neither of those situations apply to me but I will give credit to those who grabbed it while they could because the board has made it clear that bringing caregivers into the fold and out of the black market is not going to happen. All that talk of getting everyone on the right side of the law was just a bunch of talk as suspected. And the beat goes on...
  12. As noted at the board meeting yesterday, ONE shop in Ann Arbor did 4.5 million in sales last year. There are about 12 or so shops in Ann Arbor. As noted at last months board meeting, ONE caregiver reported yearly income of $350,000 each the last three years but was denied because he was actually stuffing more cash than that in his bank account. This has been huge business in some cities for the last decade. No one believed me.
