  1. Governor Whitmer Signs Marijuana Legislation Putting Michiganders’ Health and Safety First July 13, 2021, Governor Whitmer signed legislation that protects the public health and safety of Michigan residents by regulating the intoxicating substance delta-8 THC derivative that is currently being sold – untested and unregulated – in convenience stores, gas stores, and tobacco/smoke shops throughout the state. Starting on October 11, 2021 Starting on October 11, 2021, these products – which were available for sale to individuals of all ages by businesses that cannot currently sell
  2. June 28 (UPI) — Federal regulations on marijuana may “no longer be necessary” as individual states enact their own laws on its use and sale, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in an opinion Monday. Thomas, one of the high court’s most conservative justices, cited what he called the federal government’s “half-in, half-out” approach that “simultaneously tolerates and forbids local use of marijuana” and concludes that federal pot laws and policies may now be obsolete. “A prohibition on intrastate use or cultivation of marijuana may no longer be necessary or proper to support the
  3. June 25, 2021 – Michigan’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency – in conjunction with the Michigan Public Service Commission, the Bureau of Fire Services, the Dept. of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy, and electric providers in the state of Michigan – today produced and distributed materials to inform Michigan residents growing marijuana in their homes about the best ways to keep themselves, their neighbors, and their community safe while continuing to protect Michigan’s electric grid. Michigan residents with medical marijuana patient and caregiver registration cards have been able to grow a li
  4. DETROIT (FOX 2) – A growing group of Detroiters call for the city to provide reparations. The ballot measure would take funds from legalized marijuana to pay for them. FOX 2: “How many signatures are needed to get this on the ballot?” “A little bit more than 3,600 signatures,” said Todd Perkins, attorney. FOX 2: “And how many do you have?” “We are close to 4,000.” And come November Detroiters may vote on whether the city provides reparations to its African-American residents. “It’s the biggest, blackest city yet you still see an economic divide,” Perkins said. “A gap th
  5. General Motors is having trouble finding employees for two of its busiest assembly plants and the UAW calls for GM to cease drug testing for cannabis. The company is looking to hire 400 temporary employees for its Flint assembly plant and another 275 temporary employees in Fort Wayne. But when the company conducted a job fair in Fort Wayne two weeks ago, it attracted just 60 applicants, or only 22% of the Indiana plant’s needs. While finding employees is an issue plaguing many businesses, UAW officials for GM’s Flint and Fort Wayne plants believe the solution is quite simple — stop tes
  6. “Let’s Do This!” Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel shouted at the kickoff of a criminal record expungement fair in Flint on Wednesday. Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist joined Attorney General Dana Nessel, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, Congressman Dan Kildee and Genesee County Sheriff Christopher Swanson in Flint for the state’s first expungement event since the governor signed the Clean Slate bills into law. During her 2018 campaign, Governor Whitmer made expungement for marijuana convictions one of her key priorities. Upon taking office, Governor Wh
  7. The Michigan House has passed legislation that would close a loophole allowing the sale of unregulated THC products. Currently, some products use THC from marijuana, but are not regulated the same way. A new bill, HB 4517, would expand Michigan’s definition of marijuana to include THC, regardless of whether it is artificially or naturally derived. The new legislation would define all THC products as marijuana, making them subject to the same testing and regulations. Michigan legalized medical marijuana back in 2008, and recreational marijuana 10 years later in 2018. The new
  8. A Lansing man is suing five police officers, Ingham County and a confidential police informant for what he says was a mistaken identity arrest. The five officers — four from Michigan State Police and one from the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office — were working with a confidential informant who told them a man named Al Jessup could sell him heroin and cocaine, according to a police report. According to the lawsuit, the informant lied to police about the seller’s identity and police were “reckless” in relying on the information. Police bought drugs twice from a man they believed to b
  9. A federal judge in Detroit heard arguments Thursday in a legal battle that has halted the processing of applications for recreational marijuana businesses in the city. U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman last month ordered Detroit to temporarily stop processing applications amid a lawsuit that argues a provision of a new city ordinance regulating recreational pot operations gives unfair preference to longtime residents deemed legacy Detroiters. Friedman granted the preliminary injunction in favor of Crystal Lowe, a resident and prospective marijuana business operator, who sued the

  12. Executive director of Michigan’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency, Andrew Brisbo, announced a new legislative importance, that the state bring Delta-8 THC and other cannabinoids under the same regulatory framework as Delta-9 THC. HB4517 The eight bills, led by HB 4517, and sponsored by Rep. Yousef Rabhi (D- Ann Arbor) and Rep.

  14. Mexican lawmakers have failed to meet a Supreme Court deadline to end marijuana prohibition after spending months going back and forth on a legalization bill that passed both chambers of Congress in differing forms. The result is a lot of uncertainty. The court first deemed prohibition unconstitutional in 2018, ordering legislators to enact a policy change. And while there’s been progress in drafting and advancing legalization legislation in the years since, senators repeatedly requested deadline extensions that the court granted. This session, it seemed like the reform would finally b
  15. New Criminal Record Expungement Laws in Michigan went into effect on April 11, 2021. The eligibility to get records set aside varies and confuses many of those looking to get it done. The government has released many help programs but it might be wise to have a lawyer assist you. Criminal record set asides (sometimes referred to as “expungement”) can help individuals to have the opportunity to find jobs and affordable housing. A “clean slate” can help strengthen families, communities, and the chance to make a better life. Setting it Aside Setting aside a conviction is the proc
