Recreational and Medical Marijuana in Michigan

On November 6, 2018, the voters of the State of Michigan approved by a 56 percent–44 percent margin a ballot initiative to support the cultivation, distribution, and sale of marijuana for adult use in Michigan.

This law is known as the “Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act” (MRTMA) does not replace the currently effective Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA) nor the 2008 ballot initiative known as the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act (MMMA) which established the caregiver/patient system.

Michigan has three separate actions to organize recreational and medical marijuana.

MRTMA establishes a regulatory system for issuing licenses for growing, processing, testing, transportation and sale of marijuana for use by those 21 years and older. It is believed that many of the systems currently in place MMFLA will transfer into the new regulatory policy for action.

The main difference between the present and the future is that under MRTMA no supervisory board to deal with the system as MMFLA today. Are the functions are consolidated with the current Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation (BMMR) or delivered to a new bureau in the remains of the department to be seen.

MRTMA, like MMFLA, has five main categories of licensees: farmers, processors, transporters safe, laboratory testing, and retail centers. The type and number of categories of growers have changed, and new ones are known as micro-enterprises added. Cannabis employers need to pay special attention to it because it offers some unique opportunities.
