What you need to know about the new marijuana/vaping regulations

The Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) rolled out new emergency rules Friday.

These rules come amid the public health crisis involving vaping products.

The MRA is now requiring all inactive ingredients added to marijuana products be clearly listed on the product label.

Not only that, effective immediately, licensees can no longer sell a marijuana product intended for vaping. This is a temporary change.

But President Donald Trump says its going to come here illegally anyway.

Trump did meet with both vaping industry groups and public health leaders.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer's administration did ban vitamin E acetate in vaping products.

Vitamin E acetate has only recently been used as a thickener in vaping fluid, particularly in black market vaping cartridges.

The Michigan Cannabis Industry Association (MiCIA) issues a statement supporting Whitmer's move. Robin Schneider, the Executive Director of the MiCIA said in part, "Our member's No. 1 priority is providing safe, tested medicine to medical marijuana patients across the state, we think this will contribute significantly towards that goal."

Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist said, "These rules require stringent testing and will continue to prioritize the health and safety of Michiganders."

Back in September Michigan was the first state to ban vape products.

That ban was temporarily stopped by a Michigan Court of Claims in October.
