Gov. Rick Snyder on Tuesday signed new emergency rules allowing 108 facilities to operate until Dec. 15 as long as they have secured local approval. Ninety-eight businesses, mostly dispensaries, will be sent cease-and-desist letters if they are still open after this weekend because they did not request a license or failed to move to a second step.

This is the third time the state has changed deadlines as it implements a 2016 law requiring a state license to operate a medical marijuana business.

Thirty-seven businesses have been issued a license or have been approved for licensure.
