Anybody that is a registered qualifying patient or registered caregiver with the State of Michigan operating under the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act (MMMA) will not be affected by the new MMFLA. The exact same civil liberties, privileges, immunities and protections available under the MMMA will certainly still apply to patients as well as caregivers that are complying with the policies. Consequently, a patient or caregiver might continue to grow medical marijuana, as long as it is done within the boundaries developed by the MMMA, without any added regulations, restrictions or regulations.
The Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA) does not conflict with, adjustment, or modify, whatsoever, the MMMA. The MMFLA creates the capability for individuals to acquire licenses to run services in the medical marijuana market. Such organisations will certainly permit higher access to registered patients as well as caregivers to acquire medical marijuana on their own and also their patients.
Those greater access possibilities for acquiring medical cannabis for patients and also caregivers will come from the capability to buy secure, tested as well as top quality medical cannabis, both leaf, edible as well as in various other processed types, from licensed provisioning centers (what were previously and generally known as dispensaries). Patients will be allowed to purchase up to 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana from a licensed provisioning center. Primary caregivers will certainly have the ability to aid their patients with getting and also making use of medical cannabis. Nevertheless, under the MMFLA, a registered caregiver who is not able to generate sufficient usable marijuana for a patient from their very own cultivation will certainly have the ability to acquire medical marijuana for their registered patient at a licensed provisioning center.
The bottom line for caregivers: you will certainly not be affected by the requirements of the MMFLA and also you may continue to operate with the exact same guidelines, guidelines and constraints positioned upon your patients as well as you as stated in the MMMA. Should you have any questions, please give us a call so we can set up a consultation and also review your scenario.
