Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder signed three bills on Sept. 21, 2016, to overhaul the state’s medical marijuana system, and now the new laws are going into effect, as reported by CBS Detroit.

The state is implementing new laws for the entire supply chain, requiring the use of a seed-to-sale tracking system, a 3% tax on retailers and separate licenses for specific commercial roles in the industry, as well as allowing for the production and distribution of marijuana-infused products.

According to Matt Abel, executive director of Michigan NORML, “In addition to dried leaves and flowers being legal to possess for patients, the legislature has added the words resin and extract, so now concentrated forms of cannabis will be legal in Michigan … and topical oils and ointments, tinctures, which are a liquid that someone might put under their tongue, beverages and edibles.”
