Social Equity Plan for Cannabis Dispensary

Pursuant to Rule 4 (16) of the Marijuana Licenses Rule Set (R 420.4(16)), an applicant seeking licensure under the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act (MRTMA) shall provide a social equity plan detailing a plan to promote and encourage participation in the marijuana industry by people from communities that have been disproportionately impacted by marijuana prohibition and enforcement and to positively impact those communities.

This bulletin is issued to provide applicants with guidance on what they should consider when developing and implementing the social equity plan that is required with the adult use application and designed to meet the intent of this rule. The information in this bulletin is provided for guidance and should not be construed as requirements for applicants’ social equity plans.

Identify the primary component(s) of your social equity plan. The following are examples of what licensees in Michigan and other states have included in their social equity plans:

Employing individuals from disproportionately impacted communities at their marijuana establishment(s). A list of the communities the Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) has identified as disproportionately impacted is listed here.

Employing disproportionately impacted individuals who have qualified for the MRA’s social equity program (caregivers or individuals with marijuana-related convictions) or individuals the licensee has identified as having been disproportionately impacted based on criteria established by the licensee.

Providing educational and outreach sessions in partnership with the MRA to individuals who qualified as disproportionately impacted individuals for the MRA’s social equity program (caregivers, individuals with marijuana-related convictions, individuals, and individuals from disproportionately impacted communities) or individuals the licensee has identified as disproportionately impacted based on criteria established by the licensee.

Providing mentorship programs for individuals who qualified as disproportionately impacted individuals for the MRA’s social equity program (caregivers, individuals with marijuana-related convictions, and individuals from disproportionately impacted communities) or individuals the licensee has identified as disproportionately impacted based on criteria established by the licensee.

Providing grants, loans, or monetary assistance to individuals seeking an adultuse license who have qualified for the MRA’s social equity program (caregivers, individuals with marijuana-related convictions, and individuals from disproportionately impacted communities) or individuals the licensee has identified as disproportionately impacted based on criteria established by the licensee.

Partnering in business ventures with licensees who qualified for the MRA’s social equity program or who the licensee has identified as disproportionately impacted based on criteria established by the licensee.

Providing training for employment in the marijuana industry for individuals who qualified as disproportionately impacted individuals for the MRA’s social equity program (caregivers, individuals with marijuana-related convictions, and individuals from disproportionately impacted communities) or individuals the licensee has identified as disproportionately impacted based on criteria established by the licensee.

Providing information and assistance for expungement of marijuana-related convictions for interested Michigan residents.

In the same way a business owner would measure progress towards any other strategic goal or objective for his or her business, the MRA recommends that applicants identify in specific, concrete terms how they will measure the effectiveness of their social equity plans after they become licensed. Although the MRA does not require it, we recommend applicants include these measures of effectiveness in the social equity plan they submit with their adult-use application.
