Michigan’s New Social Equity Program
State policymakers have long faced the challenge of making repairs to those affected by incarceration due to an era of prohibition against cannabis. However, this month, the state’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency released details for a social equity program that will support cannabis entrepreneurs in 19 communities, giving them a chance to work in an industry that they might not have had before.
For qualifying applicants, Michigan has pledged to provide a 60% discount towards application and licensing fees. Individuals in the program will also gain access to educational resources relevant to the cannabis industry, as well as support from governmental agencies that regulate taxes, environmental laws, business registration, health and human services, and occupational safety.
