The Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) and the Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation (BMMR) will be presenting a series of educational sessions designed to familiarize potential licensees with the application process and the statewide monitoring system.

Employees of LARA and BMMR will be on hand during the in-person sessions to show attendees the license application process for each of the five license categories:

  • Grower
  • Processor
  • Secure Transporter
  • Provisioning Center
  • Safety Compliance Facility

Representatives from Franwell – the company chosen to implement Michigan’s statewide monitoring system for integrated marihuana tracking, inventory, and verification under the Marihuana Tracking Act – will be present at each of the five medical marihuana educational sessions to demonstrate Franwell’s Metrc, the seed-to-sale tracking system, to potential licensees.

Metrc is a cloud-hosted, real-time, online software reporting system that will be used by licensed Michigan medical marihuana businesses to manage and report supply chain activities as required by state rules. Metrc uses serialized tags attached to every plant – and labels attached to wholesale packages – to track medical marijuana inventory through different stages of growth, as well the drying and curing processes.
