The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) announced on February 15 that Michigan will now require a universal symbol for marijuana to be placed on all cannabis products. They explain how Rule 38 and 39 of the Emergency Rules states that before marijuana can be sold or transferred, it must have a package tag attached to the plant or plant container and be enclosed with a tamper-proof seal that includes a “universal symbol if applicable.”

They’ve decided if a marijuana product that is being sold or transferred contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) it must include the universal symbol. Opposite of this, they write if the plant or plant product doesn’t meet the definition of “marihuana” as defined in the MMFLA then the universal symbol is not required.

LARA explains how along with the symbol, the product, bag, or container must be sealed with a list of specific information. They report you need to include the date of harvest, name of strain, net weight, concentration of THC or CBD, name of the safety compliance facility that performed any tests and more.

The Associated Press of Leafly describes this symbol as an “upside-down green triangle with an image of a green marijuana leaf in the middle along with the words “CONTAINS THC” above it.”
