Pharmacies May Soon Fill Medical Marijuana Patient Prescriptions

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - If a proposed bill becomes law, medical marijuana patients in Michigan may soon have a new source for the product.

The Michigan Supreme Court ruled dispensaries and pharmacies are not allowed to sell under the state's 2008 Medical Marijuana Law.

That could all change due to the "Provisioning Centers Act."

The act would allow local communities to license and regulate marijuana.

Bill supporters also say selling and regulating medical marijuana through pharmacies would ensure the drug does not contain mold, pesticides or toxins.

Some argue the regulation isn't necessary.

"Farmers don't want to intentionally hand any body mold. And we found that many of the farmers actually voluntarily tested their medications. A lot of dispensaries that are in existence they too tested their dispensaries. No body wants to see patients ingest mold," said Becca Hollandsworth, opposer of the bill.
