Marijuana sold in pharmacies? Some Michigan legislators say yes

WNDU reports that the legislation would need federal approval if passed.

A Michigan Senate committee approved legislation last week that would allow doctors to issue pharmaceutical-grade cannabis cards to patients, who could then purchase marijuana at local pharmacies.

The Elkhart Truth’s news partner WNDU reports that, if passed and approved by the federal government, the bill wouldn’t interfere with existing medical marijuana laws that allow patients to grow their own marijuana or purchase it from state-qualified caregivers.

Critics of the bill say that concerns about homegrown marijuana are exaggerated.

The bill has moved into the general orders or second reading stage of the legislative process.
