Unsure Of Where To Start With The New Marijuana Liability Requirement? Kapnick Can Help.
There is a new law in Michigan requiring marijuana liability insurance. Public Act 55 of 2021 recently amended the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marihuana Act. PA 55 of 2021 takes effect on October 11, 2021 and requires marijuana retailers and marijuana microbusiness licensees to have and maintain a minimum of $50,000 of marijuana liability insurance coverage.
The deadline for compliance depends on your initial license timeline:
For marijuana retailers and microbusinesses licensed before 10/11/21, they must submit proof of the required liability insurance to the MRA at license renewal.
For marijuana retailers and microbusinesses licensed on or after 10/11/21, they must obtain and submit proof of the required liability insurance to the MRA within 60 days of their license being issued.
