Background - Medical Marihuana Operation and Oversight Grant

This Act delegates responsibility for marihuana licensing, regulation and enforcement to the Michigan Department of Regulatory Affairs (LARA). LARA’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) is responsible for the oversight of medical and adult-use (recreational) marijuana in Michigan
