Medical Marijuana Dispensary And Edible Bills In Michigan Explained

In Sept. of 2016, Gov. Snyder signed into law new Michigan Medical Marijuana dispensary and edible bills that will change the current landscape of how medical marijuana patents and caregivers obtain medical marijuana. This is changing the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (MMMA) here in the State of Michigan. The MMMA, due to the new medical marijuana dispensary and edible bills, modify the MMMA, unless otherwise determined, and thus now there will be new laws, provisions, and oversight for the MMMA.

This will apply to all medical marijuana users (patients and caregivers) that are members of Michigan’s medical marijuana program.

The new Medical Marijuana dispensary and edible bills provide specific provisions for individual companies to distribute medical marijuana to end users. This had been lacking prior to the enactment of these bills in many areas around the State of Michigan. Dispensary, prior to this enactment, had been operating under municipal ordinances that did not technically bring about legality for their operation. Two of the medical marijuana dispensary and edible bills specifically look to control and provide for the growth, sale, and seed of medical marijuana and marijuana plants. It is important to note that the State will be in control of providing licenses to those individual who want to commercially grow and distribute medical marijuana through the new medical marihuana dispensary and edible bills.
