Michigan operates two separate tracks for medical and adult-use licensing, so many companies obtain both medical and adult-use licenses for the same location. The state also allows license “stacking” where a grower can obtain multiple “Class C” licenses, which allow up to 2,000 plants per license. The state also offers Class B, for up to 500 plants, and Class A, for up to 100 plants.
