On Thursday, the Senate passed a five-bill package regulating medical marijuana in Michigan. Under the Senate-passed legislation, five licenses would be created for each of the players in the process, a 3% tax would be imposed, and it would provide local control on deciding how many centers there may be and where they can be located. The legislation also creates a state board, tasked with executing the regulations within the package. The bill package also allows for the consumption of medical marijuana in forms other than through being inhaled.
The package includes three House bills and two Senate bills. The House bills have been sent back to the House for approval of the Senate-passed changes to the bills. The Senate bills have been referred to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration.
