In June, Dykema provided coverage on the Michigan Medical Marihuana Licensing Board’s first public meeting, which allowed members of the public to address the Board for the first time. At that meeting, Chairman Rick Johnson indicated that there would be “at least” one public meeting between the end of June and October 2017.
This week, Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs announced that the Board’s second public meeting will be held on August 21 at 1:30 p.m. Likely in response to the overflow crowd at the first public meeting, the location has changed to the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center in Big Ten Conference Room A. Those unable to attend the meeting in person will be able to stream the meeting live on the Bureau of Medical Marihuana’s website.
As we noted, although the first public meeting was largely an opportunity for the Board to listen to the public, as opposed to a question and answer session, important insights were gained. Dykema will be monitoring the second public meeting for any new information that may come out.
