Michigan: State Regulators Finalize Rules Governing Retail Cannabis Sales

Lansing, MI: Regulators have finalized a series of rules and regulations to govern the adult-use marijuana market. Last November, voters approved a statewide initiative calling upon state officials to regulate the plant’s production, use, and sale.

The rules permit the licensed production and sale of cannabis. Specific license-holders will also be able to engage in marijuana deliveries and to operate social use lounges. Recreational license applications will be expedited for those already possessing medical cannabis retail licenses.

Regulators are anticipated to begin granting licenses governing the cultivation, processing, testing, and retail sale of cannabis later this year.
