Governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder officially signed into law a “landmark” legislation that clarifies and builds upon the previously approved 2008 medical marijuana law. The new legislation, House Bills 4209, 4827 and 4210 are intended to straighten up the legal status of marijuana edibles and cannabis collectives within the state.

“This new law will help Michiganders of all ages and with varying medical conditions access safe products to relieve their suffering,” Snyder said. “We can finally implement a solid framework that gives patients a safe source from which to purchase and utilize medical marijuana.”

These new laws are intended to bring more clarity to the medical marijuana system that has been the subject of many legal actions. Two legal actions in particular were by the Supreme Court whom passed a rules allowing county prosecutors to close dispensaries and dis-allowed edible cannabis as a “useable” medicine.

Also signed into law was a 3% tax on purchases made at medical cannabis collectives. These tax revenues will go towards a firefighter cancer presumption fund, local governments, sheriff’s departments and state police.

Another addition to the law is the establishment of a state licensing system to grow, process, sell, transport or test marijuana. The addition includes a seed-to-sale monitoring system to track marijuana.

These new laws will go into effect in 90 days. The state will begin receiving state operating licence applications in late 2017.
