MI: Proposal would have shut down state’s medical marijuana dispensaries

“A proposal to shut down every marijuana dispensary in the state of Michigan is tabled for now. But the proposal sent panicked patients to a marijuana licensing board meeting Monday afternoon. The state board which oversees medical marijuana proposed a resolution at the meeting that would shut down all dispensaries by September 5th. Board Member Donald Bailey made the proposal. The retired Michigan State Police sergeant says dispensaries are in violation of the state medical marijuana act. According to Mlive, Bailey proposed that if dispensaries did not close by Sept. 15, they would not be eligible for licenses under the new dispensary licensing system. On December 15, the board will begin accepting applications for dispensaries to get licenses. The issue on the table is what to do with current dispensaries that are open now.” (08/22/17)
