LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has released a new symbol and label requirements for the selling and transferring of medical marihuana.
A marihuana plant or marihuana product containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that is being sold or transferred must be labeled according to Emergency Rules 38 and 39.
The product being sold or transferred must be in a container, or bag with a label and be sealed.
All of the following information must be on the packaging:
• The name of the licensee and license number of the producer and/or the packager.
• The tag or source number as assigned by the statewide monitoring system.
• The unique identification number for the package or the harvest, if applicable.
• Date of harvest, name of strain, net weight, and concentration of THC or CBD.
• Activation time expressed in words or through a pictogram.
• Name of the safety compliance facility that performed any test, any associated test batch number, and any test analysis date.
• A warning that states the following: “For use by registered qualifying patients only. Keep out of reach of children. It is illegal to drive a motor vehicle while under the influence of marihuana.”
• The universal symbol published by the department.
The new universal symbol for marihuana will be located in a file on the department’s website. According to the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, if the plant or product does not meet the definition of “marihuana” as defined in the MMFLA then the universal symbol is not required.
