Gov. Snyder signed the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA) in 2016 to regulate dispensaries and clarify the legality of edible products in Michigan. The law allows licensed dispensaries, growers, processers, testing facilities, and transporters to operate in communities that choose to allow them. 

On November 6, 2018, Michigan voters approved Proposal 18-1, legalizing recreational marijuana and creating the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marihuana Act (MRTMA).
