People who are hoping for an extra kick from the beer they order in the future would be sadly disappointed under a bill proposed in the state Senate this week.
Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, introduced a bill that would ban the sale of marijuana-infused beers in Michigan, whether the pint was alcoholic or non-alcoholic.
“I’ve been studying the problems that have been created in Colorado following the legalization of marijuana,” he said. “And marijuana-infused beer is a recipe for disaster.”
Colorado is the only state that allows for marijuana-infused beer, but it’s only a non-alcoholic version made by the inventor of the popular Blue Moon beer.
Jones is worried about the possibility of mixing beer and marijuana because edible forms of cannabis affect people differently and take different amounts of time to take affect.
