Kathleen Gray Detroit Free Press Published 12:22 PM EDT Sep 14, 2018 The state Department of Licensing and Regulation said Friday it will comply with a court order that extends a Sept.15 deadline for 206 medical marijuana businesses operating under emergency rules to get a license or shut down to Dec. 15. The state had issued rules on Tuesday that would have let 108 medical marijuana businesses stay open until Dec. 15 while they wait for the state Medical Marijuana Licensing Board to consider their applications for a license.

Meantime, back to the mailbag. Do you believe the offensive playcalling will expand as our schedule gets harder? — @HJ_TheThird There are two conversations happening here with some people. One isn't reality. The second is important. First, Michigan's not going to run a version of the spread offense. If Jim Harbaugh's scheme eventually morphs into something along those lines over time, fine. But this team isn't going to run spread exclusively and that's fine, too. It's not built for that and it shouldn't be forced.
