MARSHALL, Mich. – Michigan Pure Med, Michigan’s largest vertically-integrated pharmaceutical-grade medical cannabis company and parent company of Common Citizen, today called for enforcement of Michigan’s illicit cannabis market following the Marijuana Regulatory Agency’s emergency rules issued Friday.
“While we applaud the Marijuana Regulatory Agency’s focus on safety, the new emergency rules will create additional hurdles for licensed operators to deliver high-quality, safe products to patients who need it most, and the lack of enforcement on black market cannabis will harm patients,” said Michael Elias, CEO of Michigan Pure Med and Common Citizen. “The lack of enforcement on black market cannabis is fueling the proliferation of the vaping crisis and it’s high-time for state leaders to crack down on bad actors who are using harmful cutting agents in their illicit products that are causing people to get sick and die.”
