In one week the legislature introduced bills to radically alter the language of the marijuana legalization proposal, advanced bills to establish and regulate a hemp industry in Michigan and a state agency asked permission to allow home grown cannabis to be sold in MMFLA stores in an effort to guarantee access to marijuana supplies to patients across the state.
Fortunately the Michigan Cannabis Business Development Group is hosting a conference this Sunday featuring the state’s most knowledgeable individuals on these and other cannabis-related subjects. Those experts include the Director of the Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation, 2019’s top Democrat in the House of Representatives, a lobbyist, a CPA, social justice and stock market professionals.
“Senate Bill 1243 is a lengthy and deceptive mess,” said Rick Thompson of the MICBD Group, mentioning the bill to amend the marijuana legalization law to eliminate home cultivation, change possession limits and in other ways gut the proposal approved less than one month ago by 56% of Michigan voters. “It’s a 75 page bill. The pair of hemp bills are awkward to read, and the proposed administrative rules for the medical marijuana business program are extensive. Come to the Conference and let the experts help you understand the vast proposed changes Michigan’s cannabis industry.”
There has never been a single week in Michigan history where more proposed changes to marijuana legislation have been introduced or renewed.
The Director, the Representative, the experts and the attendees are all available for interviews by media. Each speaker will take questions from the audience. Media is not required to pre-register for the Conference. Camera space has been allocated for broadcast outlets. The event begins at 11am, but interviews are available as early as 10:30.
Lansing Radisson Hotel, Grand Ballroom, December 2, ‘Michigan Cannabis Business Outlook 2019’, 11am-5pm.
