Authorities in Michigan released an official symbol that will be used to label all products containing medical cannabis.
According to U.S. News, the logo is an inverted green triangle that uses the words “contains THC,” and features a cannabis leaf centered inside the triangle.
The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs introduced this label to be applied under the “Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act.” Cannabis products must be labeled with the date of harvest, the concentration of THC and any other relevant identifying information available, such as weight, cannabis strain and an unique identification number.
Full details of the new cannabis rules are posted on the state’s website, including an update of the new rules that were originally approved in 2016. Medical cannabis was passed in Michigan in 2008, but it wasn’t until 2017 that newer regulations were issued under a new act. Michigan is also currently accepting applications for new cannabis business licenses.
Just recently, Michigan released emergency cannabis rules, which were rolled out in December 2017, just in time for the new year and new licenses. The rules outlined different classes for growers, rules regarding cultivation amounts and provided clarification for certain regulations that had been previously debated. For example, in Michigan, cannabis is not required to be transported in an armored car, but cannabis must be sold at a fixed location; deliveries and drive-thrus are not allowed.
Michigan has been an area of much debate since legalization, from concerns about spiking cannabis prices to the advent of a cannabis degree program. Although its industry may not be as be as relaxed as recreational states, its robust medical community grows every year, and becomes increasingly organized and successful.
