The medical marijuana laws in Michigan are about to get a lot less hazy. In June, a package of eight bills was introduced into the state House to address unclear issues within the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The act, as written, is vague and confusing to law enforcement officials as well as medical marijuana patients, so state legislators have been looking at a way to clarify the act through further legislation.
The proposed legislation to clarify the act is necessary, but future legislation should be framed around the examples set by local communities. Although these bills will not be acted on until fall, their introduction is paving the way for a clearer statewide medical marijuana policy.
