Michigan’s Cannabis Law Now In Effect – What’s Next?

Michigan’s Cannabis Law Now In Effect – What’s Next?

Today, December 6th, recreational marijuana is now legal in Tasty Hemp Oil’s home state of Michigan. This is thanks to Proposition 1, which was voted on back in November. With this huge change coming to our state, what does the proposition cover, and how will it impact our industry of non-intoxicating hemp products?

What Does The Proposition Change In Michigan?

From today onwards, adults who are 21 and over can use marijuana recreationally. Keep in mind smoking publicly is still illegal. While you can have up to 2.5 ounces of the herb on you in public, you can have up to 10 ounces on you if you are in a secure location, such as your home. Growing will also be legal, allowing up to 12 plants per household! As we stated when Proposition 1 first passed, this is nothing to take lightly, as most other states who have legalized marijuana only allow 4 plants at the most.

How Will This Influence CBD?

While this law passing does not directly affect CBD, it obviously sets a new standard at the state level. We at Tasty Hemp Oil are hoping this will lead to more testing and research regarding the many benefits of CBD, which would also result in an increase of public education on CBD itself.

With hemp (where CBD is derived from), the Michigan House of Representatives recently approved a bill, which would classify hemp as an agricultural product instead of lumping it with marijuana. This would clear the way for hemp to be grown in Michigan; this would allow us to grow and source our CBD from our own hemp plants locally.

House Bills 6330, 6331 and 6380, are waiting to be approved by the Senate, which will clear up the gray area currently surround hemp and therefore CBD as well.

While CBD is still legal in Michigan, it will clear up a lot of confusion that the industry faces.

Will Tasty Hemp Oil Now Sell THC Products?

As we said when the proposition first passed, there are currently no plans for us to produce and sell THC products. Helping people is one of our main core values and will be top of mind as we discuss this issue.
