Michigan In Need of Feedback to Create Rules and Regulations for Recreational Use
The state of Michigan has until December to come up with rules and regulations so they can begin to hand out licenses for the recreational sale of marijuana. The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs is looking for volunteers to help with developing these rules and regulations that will govern the recreational market. Commercial sales of marijuana are expected to start early next year, and recreational use will be available for those who are at least 21. Back in November, voters approved the ballot proposal to legalizes the use, possession and licensed sales of recreational marijuana. People will also be able to grow up to 12 plants each.
Michigan’s Marijuana Work Groups
The Bureau of Marijuana Regulation, a division of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs is organizing four stakeholder work groups. One of the groups that the state will work with includes people who already have a license for medical marijuana businesses and would like to expand into the recreational market. The medical marijuana businesses that have state licenses will have first dibs on the recreational licenses.
This is the first way that cannabis treatment helps patients dealing with HIV and AIDS. Marijuana is well known to be highly effective at treating nausea, vomiting, neuropathic pain, depression and anxiety. One single puff is all that is needed to positively impact a patient’s well being. The most immediate way is through assisting patients in eating, by improving appetite and then keep down their food and medication, allowing their bodies to absorb nutrients and substances needed to improve their health and boost their immunity. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a compound in marijuana, is a big component in this, as it is known to greatly reduce nausea and vomiting as well as pain and depression.
