Marijuana label bills move on to state Senate

Sep 11, 2019

Some Michigan lawmakers think women need to be warned of the potential dangers of using marijuana while pregnant.

Bills passed out of the state House Tuesday. They would require marijuana products to contain a health warning label for women who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding.

Republican Representative Thomas Albert is a bill sponsor.

“Doctors in the medical community believe there could be some long term developmental issues and it could cause low birthweight. So, we want to make sure we’re protecting our vulnerable here.”

       The bills would also require retailers to have informational pamphlets located by cash registers. Those pamphlets would have to include information about marijuana use by minors and the poison control hotline number.
