What has been the primary source of marijuana sold on Michigan medical dispensary and recreational store shelves is being phased out.
Beginning Oct. 1, medical marijuana caregivers will no longer be allowed to sell any marijuana to licensed businesses, the Marijuana Regulatory Agency said in a bulletin issued Monday, March 2.
