Any person who is a registered qualifying patient or registered caregiver with the State of Michigan running under the Michigan Medical marijuana Act (MMMA) will not be affected by the brand-new MMFLA. The very same civil liberties, opportunities, immunities and protections available under the MMMA will still apply to patients and caregivers who are complying with the policies. Consequently, a patient or caregiver may continue to grow medical cannabis, so long as it is done within the boundaries developed by the MMMA, with no extra regulations, constraints or guidelines.
The Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA) does not conflict with, change, or modify, whatsoever, the MMMA. The MMFLA creates the capacity for individuals to acquire licenses to run companies in the medical marijuana sector. Such companies will certainly allow for higher access to registered patients and caregivers to get medical cannabis on their own and their patients.
Those greater access possibilities for acquiring medical cannabis for patients as well as caregivers will come from the ability to buy secure, checked and quality medical cannabis, both leaf, edible and also in other processed kinds, from licensed provisioning centers (what were previously as well as generally referred to as dispensaries). Patients will be enabled to purchase up to 2.5 ounces of usable cannabis from a licensed provisioning center. Primary caregivers will be able to help their patients with obtaining as well as making use of medical cannabis. Nevertheless, under the MMFLA, a registered caregiver who is unable to generate adequate usable cannabis for a patient from their very own cultivation will certainly have the ability to acquire medical cannabis for their registered patient at a licensed provisioning center.
The bottom line for caregivers: you will not be impacted by the requirements of the MMFLA and you may continue to operate with the exact same rules, guidelines and restrictions put upon your patients as well as you as stated in the MMMA. Should you have any concerns, please give us a call so we can set up a consultation and also discuss your circumstance.
