A Guide to Understanding the MICHIGAN MARIJUANA LAWS: Volume III
It is hard to believe a decade has passed since the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act was implemented in Michigan. Ten years ago, Marijuana was in its infancy, Michigan was only the 13th state to pass laws allowing the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes. The powers that be, even changed the way it was spelled on purpose, possibly hoping to cause some identity crisis between what the people voted for and what they wanted. As the years passed the public got the chance to learn for themselves how cannabis was positively impacting them and their families, without the devastating effects they were always told about cannabis. Today because of this along with organizations like My Compassion, Michigan’s first 501(c)(3) federal charity for cannabis education, the great people of Michigan voted once again in Nov 2018, to allow the use of cannabis for people 21 and over without the requirement of a state issued card.
Reading this guide will give you a better understanding on Michigan Marijuana laws and how it might affect you.
