Three years after it was formed, the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency is getting a new name. 

The agency will be renamed the Cannabis Regulatory Agency and take up the task of overseeing hemp processing, distribution and sales in addition to its current regulation of the marijuana industry. 

The change moves most hemp oversight from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development to the Cannabis Regulatory Agency. The agriculture department will continue overseeing hemp cultivation. 

The change made under executive order and set to take effect in 60 days “will allow for a more effective, efficient administration and enforcement of Michigan laws regulating cannabis in all its forms,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s office said in a statement. 

“… To be blunt — safe, legal cannabis entrepreneurship, farming and consumption helps us put Michiganders first by directing the large windfall of tax revenue from this new industry to make bigger, bolder investments in local schools, roads and first responders,” Whitmer said.
