State now requires official medical-marijuana symbol

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The state of Michigan has released an official symbol to label medical marijuana products that are sold in the state and is detailing required labeling for such products.

The symbol is an upside-down green triangle with an image of a green marijuana leaf in the middle along with the words “CONTAINS THC” above it. THC is the active ingredient of marijuana.

The state Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs also released details of labeling for medical marijuana products under the state’s “Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act.” Those include date of harvest, other identifying information and concentration of THC.

Michigan voters approved marijuana use in 2008 for some chronic medical conditions. New regulations were approved in 2016.

    Regarding cannabis legalization it comes down to this. Data extracted directly from the Center for Disease Control shows that:

    * Alcoholic beverages are responsible for up to 88,000 deaths per year from simple consumption. Alcohol intoxicated drivers are responsible for up to 16,000 traffic fatalities every year.
    * Tobacco products are responsible for up to 480,000 deaths per year.
    * Cannabis has never killed a single person due to toxic overdose in medical history. Cannabis is NOT associated with lung disease or cancer.
    * All auto accidents with fatalities require full tox screen for the drivers at fault. We know drunk drivers kill. Cannabis traffic fatalities are so infrequent not a single police agency in the entire United States even keeps a statistic on traffic fatalities caused by solely cannabis intoxication.

    Data from the Center for Disease Control shows that cannabis is safer than alcoholic beverages and tobacco products which are completely legal, based on that cannabis should also be completely legal.
