Michigan advances toward Medical Marijuana Home Delivery

Posted by Sagar Satapathy on August 30, 2018.

The registered marijuana patients in Michigan are soon to get the medical marijuana at their doorpost. The licensed shops will begin home deliveries of marijuana through an online ordering system.

The Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation has proposed a rule recently that would allow the marijuana shop owners to begin the home delivery service. As per the current emergency rules there are no home delivery services.

Andrew Brisbo, director for the Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation, said,  “The rule is in line with the goal of the state’s emerging medical marijuana industry to provide safe access to patients, especially those who do not live close to a provisioning center, said

“This isn’t a brand new issue,” Brisbo said. “We heard about it even during the promulgation of the emergency rules.”

However, a public hearing on the proposed rules is expected to happen in September while the guidelines put in place by the end of the year.

As per the proposal, an employee of a provisioning center will deliver medical marijuana to only three patients in any given trip. Beside, limit the quantity delivered to daily or monthly limits.

Only the patients are allowed to receive the home delivery and not the caregivers. They would be able to pay with credit card online or with cash upon delivery.

The provisioning center also must keep a log in the statewide monitoring system indicating when a home delivery left the center, its destination and when it returned. Drivers must keep similar documentation on them while making the delivery.

If the proposed rule is approved, Michigan will be fourth state in USA after California, Oregon and Nevada to have similar policies.
