On Sept. 15th, 2016 lawmakers were finally able to pass a package of five bills that would give legal protections to Medical Marihuana Provisioning Centers (Yes – Michigan spells it with an ‘h’), growers, edibles makers, etc. The new system will set up state licensing for five different business types: grower, processor, Medical Marihuana Provisioning Center, transporter and testing lab. While an improvement in many ways, it is not without its controversies, particularly for those businesses that have been operating since voters approved a medical marijuana initiative in 2008.
With the passage of the new regulatory system, changes are ahead, particularly for those cultivating or providing medical marijuana. While much of the framework created by the new law is similar to that of other states, it represents a big change for Michigan’s program, which has been evolving since 2008.
On November 6th, Proposal 1 was passed by the voters legalizing marijuana for anyone over 21. The law will go into effect in early December, once in effect the law allows anyone over the age of 21 to carry 2.5 ounces in public and at home, have up to 10 ounces and 12 plants, as long as they are not grown in a location visible from outside.
Michigan’s state and local governments must establish regulations before products hit the shelves. That will take about two years, as the initiative gives the state’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs 24 months to create and start distributing licenses. LARA spokesman David Harns said “we anticipate waiting until the election results are certified [by the Board of State Canvassers] to discuss the particulars.”
Some states call it a Budtender, Compassion Care Technician or Patient Liaison. No matter what the title is, the job description is the same – it is the person that works behind the counter of a Medical Marihuana Provisioning Center and here at HempStaff, we believe they need to be trained. They are the product specialists whose main responsibility is to be a product specialist. This person must be trained to work with cardholders and help educate patients on how cannabis can alleviate some of their medical symptoms. Medical Marihuana Provisioning Center agents must be able to not only work with cardholders on the products that may work best but also how to use these products and what the appropriate dosages should be.
