Michigan Legalized Marijuana – Now What?

Michigan Legalized Marijuana – Now What?

Tasty Hemp Oil’s home state of Michigan just passed Proposal 1, legalizing the recreational use of marijuana for those 21 or older. With this passing, will this affect the legality of CBD?

Does This Affect the Legality Of CBD? 

No, marijuana is not the same as CBD 

CBD is derived from hemp, which is a cannabis plant just like marijuana, except it is non-intoxicating due to low levels of THC. Both industrial hemp and marijuana were made legal through Michigan’s Proposal 1.   

More and more states are beginning to regulate the use of cannabis products derived from both hemp and marijuana. This will open up new possibilities for the benefits of hemp, as CBD and hemp’s other derivatives will now be able to be thoroughly tested and studied.

Is Marijuana Legal In Michigan As Of November 7th? 

No, it is not. Any changes will be implemented after the Secretary of State certifies the results. Remember this only legalizes hemp and marijuana for individuals 21 and over. The proposition will become law ten days after the voting results have been certified, which must take place before November 26th, according to Secretary of State spokesperson Fred Woodhams. 

Though this may be the case, we expect actual business licenses to be delayed until law enforcement can get new laws in place regarding cannabis and its use.

How Much Can I Have? 

Adults 21 and over can have at least 2.5 ounces of marijuana on them. While at home, adults are allowed to have up to 10 ounces if it is in a secure location.  

How About Growing At Home? 

Under Proposition 1, Michigan residents do have the ability to grow up to 12 plants per household! The current standard in states which have legalized marijuana is 4, which is a significant increase.

Will Tasty Hemp Oil Make THC-Based Products? 

At this time, there are no plans for us to produce and sell THC products, as our primary focus is hemp and its derivatives such as CBD.  With Proposition 1 passing, we will be discussing the impact of adding THC products to the Tasty lineup. Helping people is most important to us and will be top of mind as we discuss this issue.
