Does your state have legal cannabis? Yes! Michigan has a Medical Marijuana (Marihuana) and Adult Use Marijuana programs. The Michigan Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP) is a state registry program within the Cannabis Regulatory Agency. The program administers the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act as approved by Michigan voters (2008).
In November 2018, Michigan dispensary laws changed when voters approved the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act, making the Great Lake State the 10th in the U.S. to legalize recreational cannabis. Although medical marijuana has been legal in Michigan since 2008, there was no allowance for dispensaries; however, the new legislation set up a framework for the licensing and operating of medical marijuana dispensaries, which Michigan refers to as “provisioning centers,” along with adult-use retail stores.
Even with Adult Use, Medical Marijuana 411 understands that industry personnel (budtenders) and healthcare professionals strive to be knowledgeable. The MM411, Inc Certifications offer the science behind “why” cannabis can be an option for different ailments and provides a possible healthier option than alcohol for consumption.
