LARA reminds Medical Marijuana Patients of Licensing Guidlines

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs… also known as LARA has released information to inform and advise patients regarding the registration process for acquiring a registry identification card for the Michigan Medical Marihuana Program.


The Agency is reminding patients who are in the application process that the MMMP is a state registry program and has no affiliation to any dispensary, caregiver, or physician… even one who references MMMP in their name or advertising.


Lara says that third-party business operations that tell patients that their application and physician certification serve as a temporary registration card are putting the patients at risk of possible arrest.


The Michigan Medical Marijuana Act of 2008 states that a patient or caregiver must present their valid registry identification card and a valid driver license  or photo ID – to law enforcement to be protected from arrest.


The Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation recommends that applicants wait until they receive a registry card before engaging in the medical use of marihuana.
