Could you buy medical marijuana from a pharmacy? Maybe.

Buying medical marijuana at your pharmacy may be a possibility, thanks to the Michigan Senate.

Article here.

The bill would: amend the public health code and classify marijuana as a Schedule 2 controlled substance; provide for the licensure and regulation of facilities to grow and test pharmaceutical-grade pot, and allow those facilities to sell the drug to pharmacies to dispense.

Medical marijuana users would have to get an additional, enhanced certificate from a doctor to be able to buy the drug from a pharmacy. The bill also would restrict the sale of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis to 2 ounces per month, per customer who is at least 18 years old.

The bill will move to the full Senate, where it will likely face a vote later this week.
