Update to Michigan’s cannabis industry regulations no longer requires operators in the space to maintain labor peace agreements, which are meant to protect the industry and its workers. Reports Ganjapreneur

New cannabis industry rules take effect this week in Michigan, including updated labor rules that no longer require operators to maintain labor peace agreements, according to an MLive report. The new Marijuana Regulatory Agency rules also fail to include delivery-only business licenses and a clause that would have allowed the state to force sales between cultivators and retailers even though they might be competitors under the state’s vertical integration system.

The labor peace agreement rule would have required any cannabusiness to have a labor agreement in place with employees. Marijuana Regulatory Agency Director Andrew Brisbo explained that the proposed rules would have protected the industry and its workers.
