New Cannabis Business Rules Take Effect In Michigan

If you’re a cannabusiness in Michigan, it’s just another day with another hoop to jump through. On June 22, the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency announced that operators of cannabis businesses must now utilize freshly created applications and resources. What that all actually means, though, is clear as mud.

In a press release the agency explained that the new rules are there to “implement, administer and enforce appropriate standards for marijuana businesses and associated equipment and establish regulations ensuring the safety, security, and integrity of the operation of marijuana businesses and are intended to provide clarity and consistency to those working in both the medical and adult-use markets.”

Did you catch all that? Ultimately, what the state vaguely described as ‘topic-based changes’ to the rules actually includes updated requirements on all sorts of bits and pieces of the state’s marijuana industry. For example, there are updates to the requirements on licensing, operations, sampling, and testing. Additionally, the new rules include label requirements. Amendments to the rules also incorporate setting a maximum THC level in marijuana infused products and edible marijuana products.
