Traverse City not accepting cannabis licensing due to lawsuits


Recommended Posts

Recreational retail licenses are becoming increasingly important for medical sellers who will struggle to compete in light of a drop-off in medical marijuana cardholders, Buyers don’t necessarily need that card any more to buy their medicine.

The Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act states local governments cannot ban medical and recreational retailers from co-locating, said Joslin Monahan, an attorney for Leoni Wellness LLC. Traverse City ordinances mean up to four existing medical marijuana sellers, or provisionally licensed ones, could get recreational retail licenses.

Leoni Wellness LLC’s owner argued the city’s limit of four recreational retailers violates state law, according to a complaint filed in 13th Circuit Court in August. The company is one of 13 medical marijuana sellers to be licensed in a 2019 lottery.

WHY KEEP YOUR PATIENT CARD?

Recreational retail licenses are becoming progressively more important for medical retailers who will strive to compete in the decrease in medical marijuana cardholders. Patients don’t need that card any more to buy cannabis.

What does the medical marijuana patient card do for you? – It offers more protection from legal issues (for now).  A patient is allowed to have THC in your blood because of the small payment to the state.  If you get pulled over this a line of defense. Law enforcement also must prove impairment.

Attorney recommends keeping medical marijuana card and protections.
