April 15, 2022 – Lansing, Michigan:
Michigan’s Cannabis Regulatory Agency (formerly Marijuana Regulatory Agency) announced its intent to withdraw proposed rulemaking request to allow licensed conversions of hemp-based CBD to D9 THC due to negative feedback:
After receiving a significant amount of public comment regarding safety concerns and the lack of scientific and public health data related to the conversion process outlined in the proposed Industrial Hemp Rules for Marihuana Businesses (2021-92 LR), the Cannabis Regulatory Agency (CRA) has withdrawn this request for rulemaking. The CRA will submit a new request for rulemaking for the Industrial Hemp Rules for Marihuana Businesses rule set to propose the limit(s) on total THC for industrial hemp products as required by recent legislative updates to the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marihuana Act (MRTMA).
