House Judiciary Holds Medical Marijuana Hearing

This morning the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act. The League testified about the need for local control and clarity in the Act. We were joined by two city attorneys, Clyde Robinson (Kalamazoo) and Stephen Postema (Ann Arbor) who detailed how those cities have reacted to the 2008 law.

The committee appears to be taking a deliberative and thoughtful look at the Act, and we look forward to partnering with them as we move forward in this process.
