Michigan Senate Passes Sweeping Medical Marijuana Legislation Putting The Power In Pharmacies

Posted on | December 3, 2013 | No Comments

Michigan medical marijuana is facing some important Legislature this holiday season…

House Judiciary Committee Chair Kevin Cotter is bringing three bills before the house, all related to medical marijuana. Dispensaries and edibles may be saved from the legal limbo they are currently stuck in, thanks to house bill 4271 and 5104 respectively. Meanwhile
Michigan’s Republican-led Senate already approved a measure seeking to create a “pharmaceutical-grade cannabis” registry which is a testament to the lack of knowledge by the folks voting on these crucial issues. Can I still get my asparagus over the counter?

The first priority seems to be House Bill 4271, ‘The Medical Marijuana Provisioning Center Regulation Act’. The big question with this one appears to be if the facilities will be required to test their products in order to be able to sell. Cotter says, “I think there seems to be broad agreement, or at least everybody agrees it makes sense that, especially when you have patients that could potentially have depressed immune systems already, if they are exposed to mold or pesticides, I think it’s just intuitive that that could present some issues. And so, we want to look at that.”

The fate of Senate Bill 660  hinges on the federal government, and whether or not they are willing to classify marijuana as a prescription drug and regulate it as such.

After the Thanksgiving break, State lawmakers have an expected two week period of sessions before the end of the year.
