Medical marijuana patients residing in Michigan may get a new way to obtain their medicine, as The Michigan House of Representatives look over a bill that would allow dispensaries to legally operate within the state.
The “Medical Marijuana Provisioning Center Regulation Act” is a bit of an addendum to the state’s “Medical Marijuana Act” that was passed in 2008. As more people become educated about the needed resources for treating patients with MMJ, the need for dispensaries becomes apparent.
Currently, patients can obtain the medicine by either growing it, or by entering a contract with a caretaker. The new Bill would allow citizens to decide if they would like the added option of dispensaries in their cities, which is more thoughtful of the law passed in Arizona, where ONLY dispensaries are allowed!
