Michigan is trying to ease newly licensed medical marijuana dispensaries’ concerns that they’ll run out of supply and lose business during the transition to a new, stricter regulatory regime.

The state’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs is recommending that licensed dispensaries and processors be allowed to temporarily supplement their supplies by buying product from registered primary caregivers.

The recommendation will be considered by the state’s Medical Marihuana Licensing Board at its Dec. 7 meeting.
