Mississippi: Department of Health Proposes Revisions to State’s Medical Cannabis Regulations

Be warned there’s 202 pages of this for you to digest!



Green Market Report writes

Mississippi cannabis regulators announced new revisions to industry regulations, with 202 pages of red-lined changes to the former rules released by the state Department of Health on Thursday.

The agency will accept industry comments and public feedback until Oct. 2, The National Law Review reported.

Tweaks to the South’s newest medical marijuana program – which just launched sales in January – have been in the works for months, as both regulators and state lawmakers have been busy proposing updates.

Many of the most significant changes from the Department of Health are more precise definitions for various marijuana industry terms, The National Law Review reported.

Among the highlights:

  • A wealth of new technical term definitions, from “cannabis facility” to “total THC.”
  • A clear distinction of “industrial hemp” from “cannabis,” which excludes “cannabis products” and “cannabis flower” from any hemp categories.
  • Classifications of kief, hashish, bubble hash, oil, and wax all as “concentrates.”
  • A more precise definition of “indoor cannabis cultivation.”
  • Refining “medical cannabis establishment representative” to include anyone with a 10% or greater ownership stake in any MMJ business and also independent contractors that are relied upon to run day-to-day operations.
