Lawmakers discuss the future of marijuana in Michigan

LANSING, MI (WILX) -- Tuesday lawmakers met to discuss the future of marijuana in Michigan.

Some bills they discussed Tuesday were amending the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act and the Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing Act.

Essentially, these two bills would require the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, LARA, to require that marijuana sold to have a warning label on it stating using marijuana while pregnant, breastfeeding or breastfeeding may result in fetal injury, preterm birth, low birth weight, or developmental problems for the child.

According to the CDC 1 in 20 women use marijuana while pregnant or breastfeeding.

In addition to warning labels, lawmakers want to allow commissioned park and recreation officers to enforce the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act, which legalized marijuana in 2018 in Michigan.
