Oil-based marijuana product will now be covered by medical marijuana laws
The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs said in a statement that state laws will now allow the sale of CBD (oil based cannibus) to medical marijuana patients.
CBD advocates say the oil can help people with medical conditions like seizures, chronic pain, anxiety and sleep issues.
However, it does not give users the same "high" feeling commonly associated with smoking pot.
But any change by the state might not matter.
In the fall Michigan residents could vote on a ballot question to legalize recreational marijuana.
