How is your plant count determined as it affects your growing limits as a Class A, B, C Grower Licenses?

The MMFLA defines a plant as any living organism that produces its own food through photosynthesis and has observable root formation or is in growth material.

A licensee’s plant limit is based on the type of license issued. Any plant that meets this definition is counted toward the licensee’s plant count.

Can I hold a CPL license and a medical marihuana facility license?

There are no restrictions in the MMFLA that prevent a CPL holder from obtaining a medical marihuana facility license.
