On September 21, 2016, Governor Snyder signed three new laws that clarify and add to the state’s voter-approved Michigan Medical Marihuana Act from 2008. The new laws give local governments the authority to regulate the number and location of commercial medical marijuana facilities, allow marijuana-infused products, and create a “seed-to-sale” tracking system. The bills are now PA 281-283 of 2016.

This webinar is a follow-up training to the winter/spring 2017 MSU Extension ‘Regulating Medical Marijuana Facilities: A Workshop for Local Government'. The webinar will assume a base-level of understanding of the national and state context of medical marijuana, the overall regulatory framework in Michigan, and local government roles in planning and zoning for uses of land.

The webinar will:

  • Review Michigan's medical marijuana facilities laws
  • Summarize options for local government regulation
  • Highlight ordinances that municipalities are adopting and compare approaches
  • Detail state authority and the latest rules facilities must follow

Supplemental materials for the webinar will be provided electronically.
