Back in July 2021, Governor Whitmer signed legislation to regulate delta-8 THC, which is currently being sold (untested and unregulated) in convenience stores, gas stores and tobacco/smoke shops throughout the state. Beginning Oct. 11, 2021, it will be illegal for businesses in Michigan to produce or sell delta-8 THC and related intoxicating cannabis products without licensing from Michigan’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA). The legislation categorizes all THC isomers of cannabis, including delta-8 THC, as marijuana, and updates the definitions of marijuana, THC and hemp accordingly.
Michigan financial institutions should take note of his new law to ensure businesses within their marijuana-related portfolios have complied with the new laws. Should you have questions about your regulatory compliance requirements as an institution in relation to marijuana-related banking, please contact Doeren Mayhew’s advisors today.
