State by state, laws regarding the legalization of marijuana are changing at an incredibly rapid pace. Every day there is news about another state creating new medical marijuana laws are legalizing marijuana possession and use. The federal legislature is hip to the marijuana movement and despite what many think, they are not ignoring it. They understand that marijuana industry and business is not going away and therefore it must be dealt with on a national stage to make the industry safe. There is a growing sentiment that this movement will result in nationwide legalization and regulation of marijuana just as alcohol is today. But just like alcohol, there will always be regulation. There will always be marijuana law that must be understood by all who choose to deal with marijuana in every way including business and consumers.

The Michigan Medical Marijuana Act is historic legislation created by voter initiative, which codified the overwhelming support for, and recognition of medical marijuana as a legitimate and beneficial use for marijuana. Many see this legislation as a savior for those who have legitimate medical illnesses that marijuana can assist. Others believe it is only a pre-cursor for the legalization movement. This law office believes that it is both. It has been medically proven that Marijuana definitely provides legitimate medical benefits to those afflicted with many different illnesses. We also believe that the MMMA is the first step towards the legalization of marijuana in Michigan.

The Marijuana Business Laws in Michigan are about to undergo a significant change. Those operating marijuana businesses must immediately take action and prepare for the new state law and regulation that they must abide. The Cannabis Legal Group has the expertise and plan for ensuring obtaining and maintaining state licensure compliance.
