Michigan Marijuana News

Medical marijuana advocates are confident a state House panel will approve a pair of bills Tuesday that would significantly change the way patients can obtain and use cannabis.

Recent court rulings have made it illegal to operate medical marijuana dispensaries in Michigan and for patients to use edible forms of cannabis. House Bill 4271 would revive dispensaries with new regulations, and House Bill 5104 would allow patients to use so-called “medibles”. The Legislature is expected to wrap up its work for the year on Thursday. Schneider says she hopes lawmakers feel a sense of urgency to pass the legislation. The state House Judiciary Committee is also considering Senate Bill 660, which could clear the way for pharmacies to sell medical marijuana in Michigan. That would only happen if the federal government decides to regulate cannabis as a prescription drug.
