March 1st, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) signed executive order 2019-7. The order created the Marijuana Regulatory Agency, within the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA). The agency will officially replace the Medical Marihuana Licensing Board this week.
The change involves more than just reprinting office stationary.
The new agency will be responsible for administering laws related to medical marijuana (which has been legal for a decade) and recreational marijuana (which Michigan voters approved last November).
