Michigan Medical Marijuana Bills Heading to Governor’s Desk

This afternoon, the Michigan House of Representatives concurred in the Senate changes to HB 4209 (83-22), HB 4210 (93-12), and HB 4827 (85-20). All three bills now head to Governor Snyder, who has 14 days to consider the bills once they are officially presented to him. The bills would then become law 90 days after the Governor signs them. For an analysis of the legislation, please refer to our previous post on the subject.

Assuming that Governor Snyder signs the legislation, as he is expected to do, the coming weeks and months will involve a flurry of activity that will greatly impact the medical marihuana system in the State. The Governor must appoint members to the Marihuana Advisory Panel and Medical Marihuana Board pursuant to HB 4209, and the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs must begin promulgating rules for the operation of the licensing system created by the legislation.
