Matt Abel, executive director of Michigan NORML, a pro-pot group, says the changes include a new category of marijuana-infused products.

“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.”


Other items that go into effect today are a new tax at dispensaries, a state licensing system for all activities related to the medical marijuana industry such as testing and transportation, and the implementation of a seed-to-sale tracking system,
